Hi all looking new skis i'm 5'11 245lbs 48 yrs old ski mostly in VT or PA i ski all terrain looking for an all mouantain ski. the ski shop like the Volkl ac40 for me i ski mostly groomed and a little bumps any help would be nice
The AC 40 is a good ski and appropriate for your weight, but it may be wider than you need to ski mostly groomers and bumps.
Don't get lost in "demoland" but you should compare it to...............
Volkl Tigershark 10'
Nordica Top Fuel
Fischer Cool Heat
Those four should be enough to find the winner and be doable in one day. The demo center at Stratton would probably have them and also the one at SR. I'm sure there are others too.
Tigershark 10? Didnt feel like the AC4 to me... I would say that the AC30 might be one to compare to, AC3 is a lighter thinner version of the AC40, would suit East Coast a bit better knowing that everything here is groomed.
