I'm 23 years old, 6'0", 140lbs from the west (Utah) looking to buy my first ski. I started skiing recently but have progressed quickly (have skied blacks). I don't want to spend a fortune on this first pair, but I want a ski I can "grow into" for a couple years. I'll probably spend most of my time on the groomers, but would like a ski that is versatile enough to ski some powder every once in a while (65%groomer/35%powder). I'm a student and won't be able to pick my ski days, but powder can usually be found on the back mountain. I'm assuming that I'll want a ski that's 165-175, given how light I am.
Input would be appreciated!
Some skis that have caught my eye so far:
K2 Shreditor 102
Salomon Quest 90/98
Rossignol Experience 98(or 88?)
K2 AMP Aftershock 14 2012 (found a great deal on this one)
Rossignol Soul7 (too wide?) (too pricey)
