I am heading to Taos next week and want to demo some new skis. I am 39, 6'4", 205 lbs. Level 7 athletic skier. I am thinking an all mountain ski, I ski aggressively and like steeps, powder, and groomers, a few bumps. I am looking at AC 30, AC 50, and K2 Recons, in a 177 ish length. I am open to any other suggestions. I think the Recons may be a little more forgiving but would like any advice. I also see that a lot of people seem to like the IM 78s and would like to hear what you think. Any advice on what to start with and what others think would be appreciated. Also I purchased the Lange Fluid 100 with custom footbeds, spent alot of time with the boot fitter and hope we got it right. Buying in the summer makes for a long wait to try them out. This will be the first test. Any advice for breaking in new boots?
