Haven't spent much time on snow in past decade (15-20 days) and want to buy skis for upcoming trip. I'm 5'10'', 180 lbs like to ski fast on groomers, love trees, might spend a day away from kids in the steep stuff. My old skis are 2003 K2 Axis XP's - 172cm...i want to be able to head into the trees if there's any good snow. HELP!!

Ever skied a 5 point ski like an S7? A perfect ski for Wolf Creek trees. Tapered tip and tail make the ski surf and smear, but the sidecut underfoot still allows surprisingly decent hard snow performance.
This is my default WC ski. Too wide for the East, but the cheap price could make it a nice addition to the quiver for powder days.
