I am in the hunt for ski's for a family member, male, 50, 5' 8" 200, likes shorter ski's (170). Ski's mostly PA/NJ/VT and a trip or 2 to steamboat. Intermediate, slower pace. Skis with kids. I will probably look for something in upper 90's later on for him and keep in Steamboat but the focus is still on the narrower ski good on Hard Pack, pushed stuff and some soft snow.
I thought (thanks @gregmerz ) the Rictor 82 would be a great choice but just seeing if there are other thoughts.
