I'm pretty decent and getting better. I'm a mainly ungroomed person and go about 2 times a week. Unfortunatly a budget is in place,
but I'm realalistic.

Figured that much. To they tend to "hide" the older models ?

What I was trying to get at is that I've never skied a bunch of different skis, so don't really know the difference between them. So
ignorance being bliss, for now anything I get will probably better then what I have, and for now that will make me happy, and I'm
fine with that ;)
