I'm new to the forum and hoping that someone can provide me with help deciding between 3 skis I've been looking to buy. I am an advanced-intermediate to advanced skier. As seems typical, I was advanced++ when I was a teen and in my 20s... took a decade off... now back at it since my kids are old enough to join me on the mountain. I ski small East Coast mountains (MA, NH) only (for now), and on-piste (but option to hit trees/bumps would be nice bonus).
I skied 165mm Fischer Motive X all season (purposely a bit short) as I eased back in to the sport, but I'm ready to let loose again in '13-'14; I definitely have my ski legs back! I loved the low-end Fischer skis for what they were--great to cruise around groomers with my kids--but now I'm ready for more speed and to step up the performance (without going broke in the process).
I've been looking at:
- 2013 Fischer Motive 80 [175mm]
- 2012 Fischer Motive 80 C-Line
- 2013 K2 AMP Velocity [172mm]
Any recommendations? Any ski/binding packages you would recommend that I haven't considered?
Location: East Coast, mostly MA & NH.
Height & Weight: 6'0", 165#, 44 YO
Thanks in advance!
