Help me buy a pair of ski's, my full profile inside, PLEASE help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

height: 5'10
weight: 180lbs

years skiing: 8
level: intermediate
what runs: mostly blue diamonds, a few blacks, also like to jump off main trail and ski some fresh powder every once in awhile

where do I ski: twice a year east coast (Vermont), twice a year in the West (Utah, Jackson Hole, Tahoe, etc)

size: 167-170's

budget: $500, looking for a used ski (demo, etc)

Overall I would consider myself a very good skier, that tries to keep up with my brother in law which is an expert.  I really need a ski that gives me that extra comfort, and truely makes me a better skier on those tougher runs, and when we hop off in to the trees & powder  Something that will give me ultimate control.

Please help, I"m looking to buy within the next week as I'm taking a trip to Jackson Hole in January and want to get on them in Vermont at least once before that.  Thanks in advance for helping a newbie out!

Hey homes, take a look at the Crazy 88s thread that reviews a bunch of mid-fats, sounds like the kind of ski you need.

lots of good skis for sale here. Just check out the pictures and details. Few if any problems with sales.

Agreed, my dad fits your profile and he skis bowls and chutes with AC20s, great ski to get you from intermediate to expert comfortably.  AC30s are slightly wider and might serve you better in terms of control.

Should I go with the Volkl AC 30's or K2 Recon's?
