I'm looking to buy my first pair of skis. I've been skiing since I was a kid (I'm 40 now), but have only skied intermittently over the last 15. Now my kids are learning and I'm hoping to get out on the slopes more often. I'm 5'11", 175lbs. I ski on the East Coast (MA, VT, NH, ME), so lots of man-made snow, ice, packed powder, mostly on groomers. I'm not headed into the woods or off the back side of the mountain any time soon. I'm very comfortable on blues and can do blacks with caution. Just tried on some boots at a local store and was happy with the Lange Blaster 90's the sales guy suggested. So what skis should I be looking at? Models on my list range from Head Rev 75s, Atomic Smoke Tis, Volkl RTM 75s, among others. I am thinking 177cm, but am open to advice on length. I'm happy buying 2013 skis (don't need the latest/greatest), and would love to keep it at the low end of the $300-$500 range, bindings included. Any suggestions?
