I just moved to Colorado from the East Coast and I am ready for new skis. In Maine/NH/VT I was using hand-me-down Atomic Metron M2s(172cm and 78mm) and could ski anything the East Coast had to offer. Also I have been Tele-ing some on BD Havocs. I had never skied out west until yesterday at A-Basin on my Teles, as I did not bring my Atomics intending to get a new pair.
Height: A tad over 6'
Days skied: 25-30
Level: Expert (at least in the East)
Previous preferences in the East Coast: Trees and Moguls. Almost exclusively skied glades or the woods between trails. Once in a while would rip wide open trails.
I have been looking at skis, but have no reference for what would be good in Colorado.
Trying to decide on length (longer than my previous 172s), width, (88 or 98?), and ski.
Some ideas that I have so far;
Blizzard Brahma 180
Blizzard Bonafide 180
Blizzard Kabookie 180
Nordica Hell and Back 177
Nordica Steadfast 178
Rossi Experience 88 178
Any help in narrowing this list or other good skis would be great! Or even suggestions as to width and length I should be looking for.
