Recommended Intermediate/Advanced Used/New Ski

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My K2 Escape 5500 have served me well for the past decade of skiing with my daughters (ages 7 and 11) and more aggressive friends in the trees and on the steep slopes.  I'm 6 ft tall, 185 lbs and ski 100% in the East - rent out West.  I'm skiing more conservatively as I get older and want another ski to let me enjoy skiing recreationally.  95% groomed trails - 5% trees.  60/40 Blues and Blacks.  Most often skiing at Stratton, Killington, Okemo, Stowe with an occassional trip up to Tremblant and Jay Peak.  

 

I've seen some great deals on 2012 Nordica Fire Arrow 80 Pro and thought see what people here think of that ski or others I might find at a good price  Every penny saved goes into the college fund, so I'm not looking to spend a ton, but want something good enough to keep me enjoying the sport.  Thanks for your thoughts.

I will selfishly suggest my Salomon XT 800's for sale here: http://www.epicski.com/t/124893/fs-2014-salomon-enduro-xt-800-skis-with-z12-bindings-175-cm-virtually-new-500

 

By many accounts an excellent frontside biased all mountain ski - not unlike the FA80 and the size is right for you.
