I'm buying my first pair of skis ever and I'm looking for more of a playful, finesse type of ski. Something that's light, quick and nimble over heavy and powerful, if that makes sense. I'm an intermediate level skier, probably a 5 skill level. I'm 25 years old, 5'9" and 155 pounds. I'll mostly be skiing groomers and a little off-trail on the east coast (mostly MA, VT and NH), but I'm looking for a ski that's at least capable all over the mountain.
I've done some research and the K2 Shreditor and Nordica Soul Rider are very close to what I'm looking for but I'm not sure how they'd handle on harder snow/ice. They also might be a little out of my skill level? Basically I'm looking for east coast equivalents of these skis or skis like them. Thanks for any help.
