Here's my situation:
I'm 29 years old, 5'10", 160lbs. I'm an advanced skier, but have lived in New York city for the past 5 years (read: work ruled my life, only got out 10 times total in S. Vermont, once to Jackson Hole). My wife and I finally decided to leave the city and will be moving to Boulder, Colorado early next year!
Before we move we'll be spending the entire month of January getting our ski legs back. Thinking Jackson Hole, but lodging could be too expensive so that might change (any suggestions)?
I'll be buying two pairs of skis for my quiver: likely one all mountain-ish and one powder. I want something that I can grow into a bit but that isn't over my head to start. I'd guess I'll be skiing 70% ungroomed, 30% groomed.
The new Volkl Kendos caught my eye, but I'm pretty open...
