Hi all, new to the forum. I've not skied much for a few years. My current skis are K2 Merlin Vs in 188. I'm 5'9" and 195#s. I'm 51. When I got the K2s I use to rec. race a lot and they were my GS skis. I loved them and still do but they're more ski then I want to use for all mountain use and they don't really like bumps or off piste. Since I got them I had started a new business and didn't ski much at all. Literally only about 10 times. I just sold the business so I plan on skiing about 25-30 days a season. I have a season pass to Killington and her sister mountains and I'll be heading out west for an extended trip or two. I have lived at ski areas for 12 seasons and have skied as many as 100 plus days in a season. (7 Tahoe, 3 Vail, 2 Killington) I'm a strong skier but getting older. Last season, after my Technica TNTs shattered into about a dozen peices first day out I got a pair of Dalbello Avanti Vcomps and I love them. I have access, through a friend to get Fischer, K2 or Nordica. In Fischer I'm leaning towards the AMCs, I haven't checked much into the K2 or Nordica. I'm heading to VT next week to do some demos. Would love to get any feedback.
