I am looking to buy some skis, have demo'd k2 shockwaves, Rossignol s86's and this weekend I am skiing on Volkl ac30's and K2 aftershocks.

What are you skiing on and how well do you like them.

What do you ski? Steeps, bumps, powder, with the kids? I went with Volkl Kendos this year. It's an all mountain ski that's fairly wide under the foot. I think they call it a 40/60 ski - 40 front side/60 back side. They ski like a dream. For me it came down to Volkl Kendos, Volkl Mantras, or K2 Aftershocks. The Kendo won out since the store made me a hell of deal on them.

I just bought the Volkl AC30's and my wife got K2 True luv's. The Volkls blew all the other stuff I demoed away. My wife really liked the K2's she also skied on Volkl Luna's, but they were too powerful for her, which is just fine with me...saved me $200.

I have been watching e bay for them and there are some deals to be had on the AC30's. The local shop let us demo for free so I paid a little more for their service.

I havent skied in 2 years since I moved to the swamp, but I still have my 2005 Rossignol Scratch skis. They are a bad ass twin tip. Great all mountain ski. I will be using them next year.

Have a set of Salomon pocket rockets for deep days, have a set of Dynastar 4x4's for all mountain, and a set of Atomic race gs for groomed days that I want to fly. (have a friend who's little brother is on a ski team so I buy up his year old sponsored skis)

I used to be out 35-40 days a year, this year I went out twice. :(
