I've been skiing in Snowmass for a few years but I've always just rented. Last year I had a pair of Volkl AC30's and loved them. I think this year I'd like to buy a set of skis instead of blowing money on rentals every year. I'd like an all-mountain, as I mostly ski the blues but go onto the blacks. I'm hoping to continue to improve as a skiier.
I've looked at the Scott Crusade and the Scott Punisher, also I've looked at the Volkl AC 30 and AC 50, but they seem to be pretty expensive. My uncle swears by his Fischers as a good all-mountain.
I've seen the Scott Crusade come across Tramdock a few times but I'm scared to buy without bindings as I don't know a lot about bindings (or skis for that matter).
I'm used to skiing 181-ish, do you think I should go higher? I'm 6"5 and 250 with a size 14 foot. I appreciate everyone's help.
Suggestions on a good ski for a big guy?
