Primarily for skiing groomed, maybe, sometimes these trails might be not so groomed, cut up, etc. I won't be using these for bumps, and ungroomed. These will be for beer league, front side carving ski only.
I ski 40-60 days a year for the last 5 years after a 20+ year long break.
I believe I'm at least a good solid intermediate. Novice racer. I can carver pretty solid, but I am really just starting to hit on dynamic carving.
I'm 5'10", ~270 lbs.
Right now I ski a Salomon Lord 160. For where I ski, this does just fine most of the time. But I'm looking to replace this on the groomed runs.
My mountain started a race program, and my Lords are wholly inadequate.
I'm looking for suggestions for either a very versatile and forgiving slalom race ski, or a front side carver that can pull duty in a once a week in a "run what you brung" super tight GS fun race. I'd like something around 12M.
This isn't exactly a "sell me something" post, but I'm not against it. Mostly I just need to figure out what I need. I've already had a couple of VERY generous offers... I'm just still not sure they weren't for skis WAY beyond my ability.
Thanks in advance for the help!
