I'm just joining the community and looking to get some help with selecting a new pair of skis. I'm not looking to purchase them right now, probably leaning more toward the end of season or summer to hope for better prices, but I am looking to demo and shop around presently. I'm an intermediate skier, definitely on the low end, but I'm skiing three or four times weekly and will be doing that for the rest of the season.
I'm 5'11" and 155 pounds and I ski with salomon x pro x90 boots, though I'm not sure that's relevant information. I've been skiing a few times before this year, but had always been on daily rental skis, and I'm currently on season rental skis, hence why I don't want to purchase right now. I live in New Hampshire and ski around this area, staying frontside almost exclusively, though I do foresee some sidecountry in my future.
Anyway, what skis should I be looking at/what should I look for in a ski? I've been doing some research and I've come across several skis I like/think would work, but I'm less knowledgeable than many. So far, the HEAD Rev 80 pr and the Atomic Vantage Theory are at the top of my list, am I heading in the right direction?
