Been looking for a toned down slalom ski for skiing hardpack and ice in Michigan - something more forgiving than a true race ski. Also, would like something that performs reasonably well in the bumps. I've been looking at the Stockli Laser SC and would like to get some opinions. Also, what other skis I should check out?
I'm 5'8", 170 lbs, strong intermediate to advanced skier and have been going back and forth on whether the 163 or 170 Stockli's would be better so thoughts on length are also appreciated.
