So this year I'm buying new skis finally and was hoping to get a little input from someone who might help me.
Me: 6' 3 250. Have skied from age 10, Advanced skier
Ski Style: Fast GS turns on groomers, skiing the crud on the edge of the runs, some bumps, jumps and trees when I can find them. I like getting myself into any interesting terrain I can actually find here in the mid-west
I ski mainly in the Midwest and we out west once per year for 3-4 days as well.
My current ski's are 2010 K2 EXT twin tips 80mm under foot. 179 long. I like these ski's but they sometimes fail me on steeper terrain when I push it really hard. Great fun skis for going out with the kids.
What I'm looking for is something a little beefier that will handle crud better (my K2's are terrible in crud) have some float for mini powder days, and something I could take out to Big Sky next winter. I'd also like a little longer ski for harder charging as well.
These ski's fit my budget perfectly.
