I have some money (a rare event) and I would like to update my skis. I have been skiing for 30 years but took some time off and just started on shape skis five years ago. My current skis are Atomic Metron 9s mid 170s in length. I have demoed longer, stiffer skis and think I would like a faster more stable ski. I like the quickness and turnabilty of my 9s and don't want to give that up. I would like to be able to go off piste more and get better at it but I am big and I sink. I was thinking of getting some Volkl AC 5os, Fischer Cold heats, Atomic Crimsons, Blizzard Magnums, K2 appache xplorer, I just don't know which or have the time or money to try them all. I am 40 y.o., 6' tall, 300 lbs., advanced skiing ability, mostly ski at Sugarloaf in Maine. Can someone help? I thank you in advance.
