Hello everyone. Great forum. I am just getting back into skiing after a hiatus of a couple years. I have come back only to realize that I am still on my first set of gear that I purchased 15 years ago! I am quickly finding out that a lot has changed (rocker vs camber, etc, fatter skis, etc).
I am off to a good start and went to a shop for boots. All set there.
My question is of course skis. Quick background. I am pretty light at 5'10'' 155-160 lbs and consider myself an intermediate level skier. I can fly down blues and manage blacks and above but not the way I am supposed to. (Moguls give me trouble) I am looking for a versatile, one-quiver ski that can hold an edge out east while also able to go into the trees and take them out west. (I am going to Breck next month). I am not the fastest guy on the mountain and don't really want to be. I like to occasionally charge but really like to go off into the trees and do my own thing when i can.
I've looked into this for quite awhile and this is what I have it narrowed down to:
Line Sick Days 95
Blizzard Bushwhacker (Although i'm having a really hard time finding a place to buy these new)
Oh and I am used to skiing a 170 length. I want to go longer I am thinking 175-180 would be perfect.
Thoughts and suggestions? Would love any input and greatly appreciated.
