I am about to purchase my first pair of skis and I have been dealing with someone at Peter Glenn who seems helpful. He has led me in the direction of Dynastar Powertrack 84s. I have tried to research online, but I can't seem to find much about them.
I enjoy skiing frontside groomers, but definatitely enjoy venturing into the backcountry stuff when there is enough snow. I go 2-3 times a year and mostly in Breck or Snowmass Aspen.
The other pair he suggested were the Blizzard brahamas, although those didnt come with bindings and would have cost around 250 extra. The Dynastar's come with bindings.
I am an advanced skier- by no means an expert and pretty much ski all types of terrain.
Any help would be amazing.
