I'm an experienced skier, skied all my life but only 6-8 times in the last 2-3 years and was renting performance gear up until now. Getting ready to ski a few weeks this winter with my kids (in Vermont) skiing at an advanced level (I think), 60 years old, 6'1, 220, athletic/reasonably strong (for a senior citizen lol).
I ski mainly on-piste, steep is fine, fast is fine, enjoy carving and try to avoid steep w/bumps.
I have an opportunity a pair of "near new" 2011 Volkl AC30s, 177's, owner claims they have 12-15 days on them. Freshly tuned and edges sharpened. Asking 400, Considering offering 300.00.
My biggest concern is these are reported to be pretty stiff and relatively heavy. At my age I'm probably going to start slowing down a little and being a little less aggressive, I'm concerned about these wearing me out by 1:00 pm,,although to keep up with my 20 year old kids and their buddies I may not have that option, lol.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated, Note: if I wasn't paying college for 2 kids I would consider a newer ski, perhaps with a little rocker, but dropping 600-700 bucks right now isn't an option, 300.00 is pushing it,
Thanks in advance, this is a great forum!!
