Looking for an outside the box recommendation? I have had the Skiers Edge T5 World Cup model with the slope simulator platform for many years now and I am so happy with this combination I wouldn't recommend anything else. I like my T5 WC because I can make my workouts as easy or as hard as I want to. I always do interval training (sets of 1 minute workouts with 4 minutes in between - gradually increasing as fitness improves). The WC model with its higher level of difficulty works out perfectly for these routines and matches up with how I actually ski. Interval training is also supported by advice from experts who recommend this over sustained endurance training (which would come from using less difficult SE models). For me the biggest bonus is I find the boredom factor gets eliminated because workouts can be finished within half an hour, are actually fun and in the end feels a lot like I have just finished a day of big mountain ripping. FYI, I am in my mid sixties, have been skiing over 60 years, enjoy all types of terrain and have had lots of success with racing at the Masters level so, please, take my recommendation based on my bio.
