I am looking for some help purchasing new skis.
1. 6' 185lb male
2. Advanced skier (will ski anything but not a fan of bumps). I like various size turns and speeds but on blacks I like to rip most of all.
3. Live in MI so apart from 1-2 trips east or west I'm stuck on midwest hills
4. I ski 10-25 days per year
I am looking for an all mountain ski with a bias toward groomers and hard stuff as that is 85-90% of what I ski. Below is a list of skis that I have come up with as preliminary list based my my wants and needs. To clarify as well I have not skied any of these and will probably not have much of an opportunity to demo them.
1. Blizzard Brahma
2. Volkl Kendo
3. Line Prophet 90
4. Elan 88xti
5.Volkl RTM 84
I currently am on a set of Elan Magfire 14 (magma) in 168 that I picked up on craigslist for $100 to buy some time till I decide.
I am open to any other ski suggestions as well.
