They might be the last skis you buy, though. At least you could go through life knowing you have some of the best skis on your feet. If you like the 94 width, perhaps the Atlas is a good choice? I would also say Mythic Rider, it is a more damp, stouter ski than the Watea 94, as is the Elan 888, which is a little stiffer and more stable, especially if skied from a rear position.
