So a few friends and I are heading out West in March for a week of skiing. We will be skiing A-Basin, Keystone, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and possibly Aspen Mountain. Heres my question: being an East coast skier I do not own a pair of fat skis to bring out West with me. I was wondering what are the specs you West coast skiers would recomend for coming out to ski on those mountains. As of now I'm skiing on an Atomic SX9 and a pair of Salomon 10 2V race skis and I was told these skis would be no where near efficient enough to ski out West. A possible mid-fat or fat ski I would be able to use when I go out West and at home on the East coast would be my goal to get before my trip. I used to race but mostly just free ski now, I'm 5'10" and weigh about 145. I'm also not looking to spend a grand on these skis since they will only be used a few times a year, so last year models are also acceptable to me. Any help you can give is much appreciated.
