I'm a Level 6-7 skier and I need some help selecting some powder skis. I'm 5' 9" and 190 lbs. 44 years old.
I recently moved to Colorado and I primarily ski at Beaver Creek and Vail. I'm skiing 2 - 3 days a week now so I'm looking for a ski that I won't outgrow too soon as I progress. I haven't really started skiing in the trees much, so I'm primarily looking for a ski for on-piste when there's a decent amount of powder on them.
My groomer skis are Blizzard Magnum 7.6 IQ demos in a 163 length which I purchased used based on some recommendations from here, and I'm very happy with them for groomer days, but we got a dumping of powder this morning and I'm thinking I need to buy some wider ski for days like today.
I heard Vail is having demo days this weekend, so I'm looking for some recommendations for a few skis that I should go try out. What are some brands/models/lengths I should consider?
I do have my own boots (Nordica W10) with custom footbeds that fit well although I will may look at upgrading them at the end of the season.
