I'm looking for some recommendations on skis. I ski mostly in the northeast, groomed trails but I wouldn't mind something I can take into the powder as I try to get to Utah or Colorado every now and then. Been skiing about five years and am comfortable on blues and just starting to venture into the blacks. Skill level is intermediate I'd say....parallel turns, mostly skidding but a little carving here and there. I tend to only ski maybe 5-10 days a seasons. I'm 5'7", 165.
I'm currently using Atomic Smokes that I bought used....likely demo skis from a circa 2010 or so. I like them, but I don't really have anything to compare them to. As I'm getting more comfortable I'm looking for something that will still be easy to handle when turning, but also something I can grow into a bit as I start to take on more steeps and speed.
I was looking at Atomics...Smoke TIs and Blackeye TIs, mostly because I'm familiar with Atomics. But any other recommendations would definitely be appreciated.
