I ski 20 days a year (60% in Vermont and 40% out West).
Now...I am a one ski person (I realize there are tradeoffs and there is no one ski for all situations).
I am deciding between the Volkl AC4 or the AC3.
Also not certain between the 163 and the 170.
For the past 10 years, It seems when I purchase skis, I tend to "overbuy" in terms of length, that is I seem to keep coming down is size.
I've skied on a 195 K2, a 190 Atomic (beta carve 626) and most recently on a 180 Atomic (10.20).
Any comments, recommendations, suggestions. I realize Demo is the way to go, but I find that a couple of hours on skis and the variable conditions one might encounter on the demo day may not tell all.
AC4 in 170cm w/PCOS, that's what I'm on. 100% east coast. Ski 65+ day's a season, 5'11" 188lbs. 30 day's so far this season.
