I'm currently heli-skiing with CMH at the K2 Rotor lodge, and part of that whole deal is that I get to pick out a "free" pair of 2016 K2 skis to bring home. Not having much experience on the various offerings that K2 has, I was hoping you all might be able to lend some guidance.
I currently own 3 pair of skis (+ a pair of rock skis):
2013 Volkl Ones (176) w/ Marker Dukes (116 under foot)
2013 Nordica Steadfasts (178) (90 under foot)
2013 Head Supershape Speeds (170) (66 under foot)
As far as I go... I'm 5'9", 175. I live in Boston, and get ~20 ski days a year on the east coast, mostly New Hampshire (Sunapee/Loon/Cannon) and New York (Gore). On top of that, I try to get out west for 10-15 days a year. This year that's Alta, Jackson Hole, and this trip.
In terms of terrain, I'll ski most anything. I don't do park stuff/tricks, but I'm happy to rip up groomers, pound some moguls, hop into a chute, or slip through some trees. I'm starting to try to get into backcountry stuff, but mostly just limited day trips in New Hampshire (Nothing too crazy, since I'm skinning on Dukes/Volkl Ones [which aren't exactly "light"]). I'm currently skiing in a pair of Atomic Waymaker Carbon 130s, and don't own a pair of tech boots. I'm a fairly decent skier (been skiing since I was 3 or 4), though obviously there's always room for improvement.
Thanks for any help you guys can provide, and I'll be back to answer questions and such after we're done with the Heli for the day!
