After having returned from a 3 year lay-off from the ski world, I'd like to trade in my Atomic Metron skis for something more fresh... and hopefully better.
I'm 42 years old, lift weights, spend a couple of hours on the treadmill per week, am 6 foot 3 inches tall, 250 lbs and consider myself to be a level 4-5 skier. (An intermediate with aspirations of getting to a solid "Advanced" level with an eye towards being a technical "Expert" in a few years.)
I might end up with 15 or ski days during the season, along with a trip to Sugarloaf USA in Maine once every couple of years.
I do all of my skiing at the local ski resort here in Eastern Canada where I'm on groomers in the morning, and cruddy groomers in the late afternoon. The depth and severity of that crud is, of course, depending on the number of skiers around me and the amount of snowfall we pick up during the day, but for some reason, there always seems to be a daily battle against it for those of us here in the land of small-ski-resort-budgets.
I've already hit a great deal on new boots, and picked up the Dalbello Aero 75's.
Not looking for a powder ski or "backside" ski.
Would love to hear your suggestions on what you would be looking at for new skis if you were in MY shoes/boots.
