... As an advanced intermediate, there are a number of really great choices for a front side (piste) oriented ski. Something like a Head Rev series ski, Dynastar powertrack skis, etc....The Rev series* is in year three of production. Chances are excellent that you can find a new 'old' pair from '12-'13 or '13-'14 steeply discounted.
* eyebrow to mid forehead height for mobility (intermediate-advanced level skiing), fun. Head height for dampness and stability (expert) .
@trokutic, you are almost exactly my size. (You are 2 or 3cm shorter, same weight.)
markojp is right on. Listen to him. You want an adult ski. Just make sure you either demo them or get a KNOWLEDGEABLE first-hand recommendation for a model that is not too stiff. The REV is a good suggestion on that score.
The thing with the Salomon Tornado is that it has not been made in quite a few years. Therefore it is possible that you could end up with a pair that has too many miles on it, which would be a false economy. If you are looking for a used ski I would suggest limiting yourself to models less than 5 years old. Make sure the bases and edges look like they still have a lot of life left in them. This can be difficult or impossible to do on line, so if there are local shops with used or leftover skis for sale that you or an experienced older skier can inspect in person, that is a more reliable way to go. The other advantage with buying from a shop is that when you go to get the skis tuned and get the bindings adjusted and tested, you are less likely to encounter an unhappy surprise. You don't want to find yourself in the position of hearing, "Well, son, these skis you bought on the Internet don't have enough base or edge material left for us to tune them." Or, "Well, son, these bindings are so corroded that we won't work on them."
