Skiied 3 times on shaped skis (rentals) after almost 20 yrs away from the sport. Seemed kinda wierd compared to my old Atomic Arc Bionic RS (red sleds) straight skis. My 3 kids (the unholy trinity) are getting into the sport and they don't mind taking along their old man (me) who will soon qualify for a seniors discont at Denny's. My wife surprised me with a pair of K2 Apache Pro's in a 174 cm length from a ski sale at one of the big chain sporting goods stores. A SMU list shows they might be either K2 comanche 3com's or Apache Sabres. The tips look to be 112cm and the waist 70cm and the tails at 98cm. The ski says a 16m turn radius. Not too athletic anymore but want to have enough edge grip for when it gets icy. Should these work on the hardpack but still be fun to carve turns as I can't find any info on them? I was planning on getting a deal on some Fischer RX6's but hate to disappoint the wife by not skiing the ones she gave me.
