Looking for new skis for a trip out west

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello all, 

 

Here's the situation, I am 5'11'' 220lbs and I have been skiing on Atomic M2tron B5 (I think from 2006) for the last 6 or 7 years.  I know these skis are/were a huge talking point here, but I absolutely love them.  The problem is that they are only 152 cm ( they barely make it to my chin now).  I have only ever skied in Pennsylvania, but I am a pretty good skier.  My B5's have always been fine here because 99% of the time I am skiing on piste or ice.  The problem is that I am finally making a trip out to Colorado in March and I know that these skis will not cut it out there.  I really struggle on the rare occasion we get powder here because I just sink.  So I am looking for an All-Mountain ski that will work well in Pennsylvania conditions because that is where I will ski the most, but will also get the job done in Colorado.  Also looking for something not too over-priced.

 

Thanks for the help!
