Unfortunately I won't be able to demo any skis prior to purchase so I'm posting this question in an effort to help me make a decision. I ski mostly Squaw Valley, Kirkwood, and Mammoth Ca. The majority of the time I'll be on packed powder and crud (Sierra cement). Prefer groomed now that i'm an old fart (47) but need a ski that can handle most conditions. I'm an advanced "old school style" skier learning the new carving techniques. Basically I just want a ski that performs well but won't kick my butt too much. I'm a 6' male and weigh 225 pounds and am in good shape. It seems that the K2 Recon in a 174 might be a good fit...............thanks for any suggestions in advance.
