I'm an intermediate skier who used to ski 10 days a year. My wife and kids have gotten hooked on skiing so we ended up getting a place in Kirkwood and we're planning to put in at least 40 days this year.
I'm 6'0, 230 lbs and I currently ski Blizzard Magnum 8.1 179s. I ski a mix of on-piste and off-piste stuff and I'm looking forward to getting to more off-piste stuff as my technique improves. In terms of ability, I can confidently ski a few of the non-mogul runs off of chair 6 and 11. I also like the backside and covered wagon.
I've read a lot about fat skis vs narrow skis but I'm not sure what I should be leaning towards as an everyday go-to ski. I'm open to getting a couple of different sets of skis so I don't necessarily need one ski that does a so-so job at everything.
Any recommendations on a short-list of skis that I should demo?
Thanks for the help!
