Ok so here's the deal. I'm coming back to the skiing world after being gone for a couple years. I would describe myself as intermediate, but I am really looking to advance my skills on-piste and even get into the backcountry a bit this year. I have purchased a season pass to Snowbird so powder performance will be important and I can get some great deals on ski gear through my employer. What would be your recommendations with all that in mind? Here are some skis I have been considering and the prices I would be getting. Thanks in advance!!!
