Hi all, new to forum, and looking for some advice. Looking to spend about $500 to $600 (with bindings), and have no problem buying last years models.
I am 6'2 , 205 pounds , expert skier Ive skied on Salomon X Screams 180 cm I bought 11 years ago, when I was 18.
I do ski some blue groomers but hoping that a newer ski would help improve my experience on mogul'd black / dbl black trails. If I were to have a complaint about anything, its that I do have trouble doing quick turns on steep, mogul'd terrain and my legs get worn out pretty quick. I realize that a lot of this is being in good skiing shape and I'm older and 20 lbs heavier (than when I skied a ton in college), but I figure this may be useful info in selecting a ski. I've heard talk from people that say new tech. makes a shorter ski more suitable, long story but I had to ski on 170s this year and really did not enjoy the feel of a shorter ski; so I am leaning more towards a 178-180 range ski (180 goes to my mouth).
Please advise, any deals on websites or upcoming deals would be appreciated to!
