Just getting back into skiing after a few years off and want to buy skis. I ski mostly groomed snow, high-intermediate, 5'11" & 180lbs.
I've been looking at Blizzard X-Power 810 Ti (comes with IQ bindings). They are last years skis and are still available for $700-ish new, seem to be fairly highly rated, no demos near me unfortunately. They look to have been replaced with the Power X8's this year but spec-wise I don't see any difference and are selling for almost $400 less due to the closeouts.
Anyone skiing these as a primary ski? Also they come in 167 & 174, leaning towards 167 as I'm not quite advanced level yet, would that be reasonable or should I go for the 174?
Thanks for the advice!
