So time for new skis this year.
Me - 42 y/o 5'10 192 plus or minus 8 lbs.
Ski about 10-12 days in michigan every year where I live, try to get another 5-10 out west each season.
Back in the 80/90's I used to ski 30+ days a year, would have been called very advanced but not an expert skiier. When I ski off piste I tend to stay away from moguls now, though don't have any issue skiing them.
Bought some Head Monster I/M 82's a few years back, no problem skiing them here, out west I felt by day 3-4 that between those and my 130 stiffness boots that I was having to push a bit too hard all the time. Loved that ski when I was on groomers flying, or in some crud, but found myself wishing for something a bit more forgiving by mid-trip.
Plan this year is to get a bit softer flex boot, and a slightly more forgiving ski. I've had Volkl RTM 81/84 recommended and Kastle MX 83/88 and FX 84 recommended. But was also told that the MX series is pretty demanding.
So... open to thoughts on those skis or other recommendations.
