I am looking at picking up an end of season deal on a very good all mountain ski. Narrowed my choices down to Volkl AC50, Atomic Crimson (not the Ti), K2 Apache Recon, and K2 Apache Xplorer.
I am 5'10" and 150lbs. Skiiing ability is in the 7-8 range. I get out West for a few days at a time once or twice a year...that is the only time that I ski. I may ski more often with my kids in the midwestern US as they get into the sport. I typically ski the whole mountain, hence the desire for an all-mountain ski...no need for multiple skis at this point. I have been skiing on an old Fischer carver, the DRS102 at 178cm.
Are there any other skis that I should be considering? I would assume in the newer shaped ski technology I should be looking at a ski in the 170cm range. I am thinking the Volkl might be a little much ski given my size. Maybe I lean toward the Crimson or Apache?
Thanks in advance for your help.
