Hey all, I am currently out in Switzerland for the beginning of the ski season and am in need of some new skis, 5'9 190, got out almost every day last year and would consider moderate to advanced, groomed skiier mostly but need an All-Mountain that can handle the Alps yet transition easily to east coast Vermont/New England skiing for when i go home. I cant really get my hands on anything while I am out here and will likely have to buy without testing so i dont want to get it wrong. Have been looking at the 2011 Head Peak 82's or the 09/10 Nordica Hot Rods. looking in the 800 range for cost.
In need of that expert advice

Given your present location, can you get to look at a bunch of Stockli's. Just pick the waist you want, mid-80s you mentioned, and buy em. Some waist demensions are available in different models with different sidecut. Pick the one you like. Great over there, great when you return to Vermont.
