My son needs new skis -- he's now far too big and heavy for his old Armada AR6s, and doesn't want/need park skis these days anyway. I'm thinking more all-mountain with an even spread between on and off-piste, or possibly a bit more off-piste, given where we ski. We're in NZ, South Island.
He's 6'2, and weighs 97kg (around 210lbs I think?). Reasonably quick, but a fairly upright/casual stance. Can cope with all terrain competently enough, hasn't done any race training. Age 21 and a student, so funds are limited.
So far possibilities (that are dictated by his budget) include an unused 2010 Elan Alu999 (major bargain price), a 2012/13 Volkl Bridge (ex-demo), 2012/13 Atomic Theory (ditto), and a 2012/13 Line Prophet 98 (also ex-demo). I'm also thinking along the lines of Rossignol S3 or Sickle, and Moment PB and J, if I can find any at a good price.
Can anyone recommend (or otherwise) any of these based on the info I've provided? Advice re potential lengths would also be useful. Cheers.
