What skis should I get? [Mid-Atlantic, trip planned to Colorado next season]

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello everybody, I've been skiing on the K2 Omni Sport for a while and I'm looking to buy some more advanced level skis. The majority of my skiing is at Wintergreen in VA, Snowshoe in WV, and Whitetail in PA but I am planning a trip out to Colorado next winter. I normally stick to skiing on piste and I'm a pretty aggressive skier.

 

Out of these skis, which one is going to be the best at handling the east coast slush and icy conditions the best but still be able to perform in nicer snow when I go out to Colorado?

 

2014 Nordica Burner 

2014 Volkl Kendo 

2014 Volkl RTM 81 

2013 Kastle MX 78

2013 Rossignol Experience 78

2012 Salomon Enduro XT 850

2012 Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel

Welcome to EpicSki!  Always interested to hear from another Mid-Atlantic skier.

 

Have you skied out in the Rockies before?  While I take my all-mountain skis with me on trips out west, I'm also quite prepared to rent demo skis that are wider if I'm lucky enough to catch a power storm.

 

How old are your boots?

My boots are a little older, they were my dad's and they fit me so he gave them to me. They're the Salomon Equipe Perfoma 8.0.

As many will attest to here, your next move should be to a bootfitter for a properly fitted boot.
