I have not bought skis in over 15 years and a lot has changed! i can ski steep tree glades and chutes, but spend 95% of my time on eastern hard pack/crud. i want a ski that doesn't demand i ski hard, but helps me for the 4-8 double diamond mogul runs I'll hit when i go.
I am 6'4, 220lbs and think i need a 176cm-180cm ski, so hopefully i have that right?
I'm told Volkl rtm77 may be good, but see rtm 81, rtm 84 and all the other brands? I'm lost!
i'd consider prior year models as i dont want to spend more than $400. how do i make a decision?
