I live in Illinois and typically ski the hard pack and man-made snow of lower wisconsin.  I'm 50 years old, 5'8", 160# and I'm between a level 6 and 7 skier.  I have some Volkl AC20s that I use here.  I'm fortunate in that I'm able to get West a few trips a winter and have enjoyed excellent snow everywhere I've been.  In many cases, it seems like my Volkls aren't great when I get in 6 or more inches of snow on an ungroomed blue slope, which I really enjoy. I'm not interested in bumps and the only thing keeping me back from skiing more blacks in the mountains is the need for better speed control on the longer runs.  What would be a good second ski to consider?  Thanks.
