I have been skiing once per year for the past 4 years all at Red River, NM during spring break. I rent at a small local shop and upgrade to the "demo" level. The last 3 years, I have rented Icelantic Pilgrims. I have really enjoyed them.
This year, we are skiing at Angel Fire, MN at new years. None of the shops there demo Icelantic skis. So, I am looking for recommendations.
About my skiing:
I like carving turns on wide, groomed, blue runs.
I like a fluid less effort ski, but one that can be a little more nimble when needed.
I am 5ft. 7in. tall and weigh 185 lbs.
Based upon the above, what would you recommend for me?
My 14 yo son, also demo-ed the Pigrims last year and loved them. Here's his info in case you'd recommend something else for him:
Likes carving on groomed blues.
Likes tucking and just going straight at times
Last year he found a small 3ft jump and did that several times
Will timidly ski through the park and go off the corners of some of the jumps
He is 5ft. 6in tall and weighs 130 lbs.
Based upon this, what you you recommend for him?
One of the shops said they demo these models:
Head Rev 80's
I haven't spoken to the other shop, but their site says they demo: K2, Head, Nortica
I have seen people compare the Icelantic Pilgrims to these two models, but I haven't confirmed that they can be rented/demo-ed at Angel Fire.
