I have started skiing weekly again and I am looking to buy skis. I'm planning on going to REI this week and picking up some Rossi Experience 88's but I wanted some opinions first.
I am an expert skier (level 9), 6', and I weigh about 215 lbs. I ski extremely aggressively and really enjoy opening it up and going fast. I'm skiing mostly in southern california at snow summit but I plan to take these on all my trips to Vermont when i see my family and the occasional vacation in Utah or Colorado as well as a big drive to mammoth every now and then. I'm not entirely sure if it constitutes "off-piste" but I do enjoy playing in the trees a few times a year. I have been demoing K2 AMP Rictor 82XTI's the last few weeks (184). I was planning on buying the 188's with the recommended 90mm rossi bindings.
My weight is on the high side right now for the weight range I bounce around in and I was worried these skis might have too much flex for me.
I went to/called every rental shop at big bear mountain and the closest demo I could find was last year's E88 in a tiny size.
Any opinions are appreciated, Thanks.
Edit: I assume it shouldn't matter but, I have the alias sensor 120 boots.
