As far as I can tell both these skis are in the same category, that being beginner to intermediate skiers. I dont know much if anything about either ski, but just from what I read on them briefly, they should be very similar. I am partial to Head skis, and the C designation means that these skis are specifuially made for ease in carving. They are not overly narrow so they will handle crud better than traditional carvers. Either ski is a good choice if they fit within your abilities.
