Hello all, 1st post here. Been reading awhile now, thanks for all the great reviews. In the market for skis. I am 38 yrs old 6' 1" 170 lbs and ski out west. Mammoth, Tahoe mainly. Probably level 7? I ski the upper part of mammoth pretty well. 70/30 piste/off piste. I like shorter turns and wide open steeps but have trouble in cruddy conditions. I guess I am looking for a 1 ski quiver that can handle some junk but can also make quick turns on groomers and occasional bumps for a lighter weight skier. 78-88mm? Something I can get a lightly used demo for a good price 1-2 yrs old. Here are my thoughts so far:
1. Fischer Watea 84
2. Rossignol s86
3. Elan Magfire 82
4. Kastle mx 78/88 price?
Any of your thoughts would be most appreciated.
