East Coast Intermediate all-mountain ski

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have narrowed down two skis based on some research on the web and some advice from friends.  I am 5'10", 190lbs, 53 years old, still fit.  Think I am an advanced intermediate skier.  I want an all mountain one quiver for the East Coast (Vermont, NH, Maine, Killington, Cannon, Stowe etc).

 

I can still charge down a groomer but am not so good in the bumps and trees, and off trail, but I want to improve in those areas. The two skis that have stood out are:

 

Head Venturi 95

dynastar powertrack 89

 

I have not had a chance to demo them.

Last I knew, Saddleback had Powertrack demos in various widths and sizes. Also the bumps and trees to try them on. A friend bought the 84 after trying the 89 first. Worth a call, anyway. Don't think they carry Head.

Welcome suggestions to alternatives and length/size etc.  I kind of want sometime that is fun but still be stable.  I know a sheet of metal helps with speed but also would like easier turn initiation and something kind in the bumps!
