I've read through the Crimson TI vs AC50 stuff on here but have a different question. I'm a big guy - 6'3", 230. I'm going to replace my Salomon X-Wing Furys and I'm torn between the Crimson TI and AC50. The ski mag reviews and many of the comments on here seem to favor the Crimson TI. But I'm wondering if anyone my size has skied both on varied conditions.
I live in MN but mostly ski Tahoe and Utah. I demo'd the AC50 on a little local hill and loved them, but couldn't demo the Crimsons. I'm on the groomers probably 1/2 the time but would like to spend more time off-piste (where my Salomons sink hard).
I'd like to hear if any bigger guys have tried both skis and what their impressions are, especially off-piste / in the trees.
