I'm finally getting back on the snow after a 4 year hiatus while in college in IA, and I'm not sure which Slalom skis would fit my ability level/size. I'd characterize myself as an intermediate/advanced skier, a 5'11" 145 lb male, 22 years old, but after 4 years off the slopes, I'm a little rusty. I raced in high school, never was a top racer, but I loved running the slalom courses over and over bashing the gates. Since I'm in MN, slalom skiing is my clear choice since GS on such tiny hills has never felt that fun to me. My question is, what are some good options for slalom skis under the $700-800 mark (older models included)? I've been looking at the 09/10 model of the Volkl Race Stock SL ski, but I'm worried that it will be too stiff to improve my technique due to my size and ability level. Any suggestions?
As a sidenote, would I be way out of my league with the midwest masters skiers?
