Me: 6 feet, 170 lb, male, average build but in decent shape
Skiing habits: intermediate skier, probably 85-90% on groomed terrain, I just started figuring out some easier mogul trails and more open glades at the end of last season. If it is groomed I feel comfortable on just about any trail I have come across in the East. I do not have the luxury of chasing powder, even living in central VT; digging out from more than 6+ inches of snow is the downside of being local. I would like to improve on bumps, and in trees, and have really enjoyed several 3-4'' early morning snowfalls.
Current ski: Rossignoal Exp 83, 176cm, probably 2013 model year, purchased as a used demo with very limited wear. Overall I like the ski compared to rentals I have used, but it does feel a bit long, or at least not as quick as I would want in moguls, trees, and for shorter radius turns (but that may be me more than the ski).
I am looking for a daily ski--I can only afford one pair at a time--that will cover the usual East Coast hard groomed stuff I ski most often, but would be complementary, fun, and helpful in the trees and in something like 4-6'' of snow. That may be asking a lot, and even more so my budget is going to be under $700.
Any suggestions for a good East Coast daily ski at a good value price?
