I was a pretty darn good skier when I was a young dude. Skied alot of single and double black diamond back in the day and can still turn em pretty good.I would say that I am a 7/8 skier. last pair of skis I owned were either Olin Comp SL's or a pair of Atomic SL ski's, can't remember. Anyway, I am looking for one pair of skis for all over the west; Big Bear, Mammoth, Utah and Colorado. I enjoy fast, medium radius carved turns but will also make a fair amount quick turns and big GS turns on occasion. Mostly on groomed runs but I also like to get into the not too dense trees and have fun in the crud and moguls too. Not too much into the deep stuff.I would say that I am an aggressive to very aggressive 6 1, 250lbs and fairly strong. Been eying the Dynastar Contact 4X4 and Salomon X Wing Tornado, I am open to any suggestions, looking to narrow down mt demo selections before i buy. Last trip to Summit i managed 34 runs from top to bottom mostly on Log Chute, The Wall and Adjacent runs.
