I just bought a pair of k2 extremes and i love them, so far (only been out on them 5 times). I think the thinest waist that the prophet comes in is 90 which might be a little too wide if you're doing most of your skiing in the typical northeast icy conditions. K2 stopped making the extremes this year but you can still find the 2010 model pretty cheap. I am kinda a newbie around here so you might wana wait for a few more opinions, but if your asking me the k2 extremes are a great all mountain ski from what i can tell.
