Hello! Have to say, love this site!
I have recently "come back" to skiing after a long hiatus. I was an avid skier as a youngster. Then a very aggressive skier (back country, bumps, etc.)
Over the last 2 seasons I have been a renter. I have rented numerous "performance" skis, but unfortunately as much as I meant to, I just cannot remember what I was skiing, and when. :(
Now I am skiing very aggressively again. Last season I really made incredible leaps in my ability... back country terrain that I could not have back in the day. Got into some knee-deep powder and LOVED it! I hit the black Ds without a problem and look forward to just getting better and better. I have never been "formally" taught, but really handle myself well and feel that I am very fluid on the groomers.
I am looking for a great all-around ski if possible. I really don't have the means to go get multiple skis for different terrain. I am not set on "brand new" either.
I want to get more into powder this season...any recs on where this can best be enjoyed in the CA, NV, Utah area would be welcome ;)
I have been doing a lot of research, lurking here on this site, going to the local ski shops (although in Vegas, not too much help).
Items that have some up in my research or with friends sales people are:
Head 88s, iM82s
Atomic crimson, B5s
K2 Apache interceptor
Any help would be so greatly appreciated!
