I recently relocated to the Vail, CO area and since I'll be skiing a lot more this year, I'd like to buy my own skis.
The Vail swap meet is coming up next weekend and I'd like to pick up a nice pair of used skis but I need to have an idea what I'm looking for before I go.
I'm 44, 5' 9" tall and 180 lbs. I consider myself an intermediate level skier and I generally stick to the blue runs. I enjoy the groomed stuff more than the off-piste and I'd like to work on improving my carving skills.
I'm thinking an all-mountain ski would be a good choice for their versatility, somewhere in the 170 range. I've read some reviews and one of the skis that seemed like a good choice was the Volkl AC30.
What other brands/models should I consider?
