Im about to buy a new pair of skiis and I cannot figure which of the above models will suit my needs best. Normally Im 1-2 times a year in very powderish snow incl offpiste (Niseko, Hokkaido) and 2-3 times in groomed snow and little off-piste (Nagano Area, W.Japan)
Last year I tried the Crossfire which I liked, but they are not easy to use off-piste. This year I was on the Rictor which I liked quite a bit, but I havent really tried them in powder snow/off-piste yet. On the K2 homepage, I cannot really make much sence of the difference of the Aftershock and the Rictor. Price difference is only usd100, so...
Im not a super aggresive rider, but I wanna be able to make fairly sharp turns and still be able to survice off-piste.
Many thanks in advance and Happy New Year
