Hello all. I know there are alot of these topics on here so I'm going to try to pack this with as much information as I can like the faq said to try and make this as painless as possible. I have been lurking on here for a few days going over various topics like this one and various reviews and comparisons so I think I have an idea of what I need, but I would like to get the professional opinion before dropping a wad of cash. I guess I'll start with a fact sheet.

Physical stats: Male, 23 years old, 6' tall, 250lb
Skiing experience: Going for about 6 years now in which time I've done a little of everything. Using the levels guide topic on this forum I'm at level "7 - open parallel, skiided turns". I usually do blues mostly because I find them more fun but I go down blacks and double blacks once or twice per trip just for the heck of it. I avoid moguls because I'm just not a huge fan.
Location: I live in New Jersey and ski mostly in Pennsylvania (Blue Mt., Shawnee, Camelback). I think the condition there is mostly groomed snow.

So on to the heart of the matter, the skis. I went to the local ski shop (Pelican) to take a look at what they have and get some advice on what I should get. Putting into consideration what I learned there and what I learned here I figured the Volkl AC30 or some equivilent is what I'm looking for. I'm going to see if I can demo these and see how they feel for me, as per advice in the faq here.

Well, that's all I've got, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
