Good to her from another Volkl fan. I am from Columbus Ohio and enjoy 7 Springs cruising along with Holiday Valley. I am into speed and high speed GS turns. I will be 68 when I hit the slopes and 200 lbs. That RTM 84 will hit the spot and I am sure you will love the ski. I expect it to be an exciting ski for you and easy to work compared to the 5 stars. Go for the 181 if speed is your thing. Enjoy and I hope to see you on the slopes. I am sending you a Private message.
