I've been skiing for 3 years, the first year on rentals and the past 2 years on K2 Apache Raiders.
I had the pleasure of Demo-ing the 2009 Dynastar Legend 8000's in 172 last weekend and they were amaaaazzzing! Its like riding a BMW vs my current Toyota Corolla. No- make that a 1960s volkswagen beetle. My current skis are somewhat choppy and the L8K's are like upgraded suspension, not to mention i can push it harder and ski faster than what i'm currently used to. In short, they were awesome!
Ive been looking around but they dont even make that ski anymore, and i saw some used ones but if i buy online, i might not be able to get it in time for my Jan 3rd Alta skiing trip in Utah!
So, does anyone have a recommendation of a current model that is very similar to the 2009 Dynastar Legend 8000 skis?
I'm 5'9", 175 to 180 lbs and an advanced skiier (not expert). I dont do moguls(beacuse i dont know how) and hardly do off piste, unless I have to. I probably ski about 3 or 4 powder days a year, and the rest of the other 20+ skiing days is just regular trails, blacks and double blacks without moguls
