Well hope the snow arrives to Snowmass before you or you may want to limit the exploring on your brand new skis. There are lots of rocks around on the steeper trails so you'll have to be careful.
If you're looking to try the Head Peak - Sunset sports tuning shop, near Christy's Sports on the mall but second level, has them. At least they might be properly tuned.
I agree that the Kastle is not an "uber Stockli". It is very skiable and freindly. I've never tried the Head IM88, but here's two others - the Blizzard atlas, and Stockli VXL stormrider i've tried.
If you like speed, the Stockli is for you. Bumps the Kastle probably has a big edge. Currently the Blizzard is not in the same league. They have a lot of working out to do on that one to make it versatile.
