I'm purchasing a new pair of skis. I am quite experienced and I have joined my Regiment (Army) Ski team and will have race skis provided.

I am looking for a ski that will do the job in my free time, as well as being able to cope with being ragged down the mountain in race training.

I spoke to an ex racer who worked for a big Ski Company in the UK and he told me that Atomic D2 or K2 Crossfire would be my best bet.

The K2 looks like a good choice with good reviews.

The D2 has a very mixed reception, non commercial reviews are hard to come by apart from on this site, and 50% of the threads have been praising and 50% bad.

Just needed someone with a bit more ski knowledge than me to help me out.

Many thanks
