So I live in PA and am addicted to skiing.  I will probably make one big trip out west a season and at least one trip up to vermont/maine per season (already have done both this season).  I hate skiing poconos, and am ready to save up for new boots and skiis that suit the type of skiing I love and in the places I love to do it.

I am:

185 pounds
29 years old

I ski:

moguls (east/west resorts)
trees (east/west resorts)
powder (I am learning to ski powder out west)
groomers only inbetween (east/west resorts)

I have:

Salomon Crossmax (intermediate ski) 170cm,
Generic Head boots
*I would be looking to replace both*

When I was in Coloroado this past Christmas I demoed the Salomon Shoguns,(101 underfoot, bamboo/wood core, 173cm, bindings mounted in the center of the ski) and loved them.  I have also heard really good things about the Line Prophet Flites (100 underfoot(I think), 173cm, bindings a bit off center towards the back) and the Atomic Snoop Daddys (top rated in "Ski" mag in my category). 

As far as boots I have heard and read a lot about the Dalbello Kryptons and thought that might be a nice match as far as flex, comfortability and versitility.

I am planning on buying during the off-season and am going to try and keep demoing this season, what recommendations would you have for someone like myself looking for a whole new outfit, skiis, boots and bindings?

Thanks for any help you can give
