The K2 AxisX (ModX) is great if you ski in the west. If you ski in the east, the 10.20 might be a better choice.
You might want to consider some of the recreational slaloms in a 170 or 175. I would suggest trying the Fischer Race SC - it is softer than many other rec slaloms (so better for the bumps), and yet a very powerful ski.

Get it out from under you with a quick move, and let it rip. For the skier addicted to the big, sweeping turn, this Air Carbon-infused sled is both lively and damp. It earned a top-four finish in Rebound Energy and nearly universal raves for its crispness from arc to arc. Best when you ski it aggressively in medium turns, said Forland. And while Kristi Brown had the same response as most testers-Don't get in the back seat on this one-she also found the Race SC to be all business for the strong, arc-happy expert. The 15-mm Racecarve Booster plate offers added leverage but also flexes freely, allowing for what Morgan calls a solid, confidence-building platform.
Happy shopping - it sure does help pass the time till the snow starts flying.
