I've skied for 2 years and I'm looking to buy my first pair of skis. I'll ski mostly at Snowshoe and the Boone, NC resorts with a couple of 3-4 day trips out west. I'm 6'1" and 195 lbs, I would consider myself an intermediate, I've skied all the blacks at the eastern places above and only blues out west but would like to progress as much as possible. From the research that I've done, I've narrowed my choices to the Volkl 4 Star @168, or the K2 Omni 4.5 or 5.5 @ 167. I've heard that weight is a big factor in choosing a ski and most of the posters are 15 to 20 lbs less than me, am I too heavy for the 4 Star? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
