I know this topic has been done to death many times, and sorry for posting, but I couldn't get a real conclusive answer while researching.
I have a family of three, me, my wife, and my son (14 years old). We are all advanced skiers, usually going on mostly blacks after getting acclimated to the terrain. Both me and my wife have skis, but since my son is still growing, we usually rent for him, this trip to Whistler Blackcomb being no exception. Now the ultimate question is, should we get performance skis or demo skis? We are casual black skiers, and aren't too "hardcore", but my son has skied for a long time and we want the skies he gets to be comfortable and work well. For 6 days, the demo are $50 more, which is no issue, but I'd rather not spend that on something that will make no difference. So what do you think? Should I go with the performace or the demo?
All help is appreciated!
