Lookin to upgrade skis. Have had a pair of k2 press for 4 years. Lookin for something a little more intense for this season.Skiing mostly Vermont packed snow, 70% woods and expert trails, 30% park. Don't do anything crazy in the park, mostly easy spins and grabs and horizontal rails and boxs. Lookin to try and buy 2012- 2013 to save some money. Also bindings suggestions would be great too.
Surface is having a sale on last year's skis and that's what it sounds like you are looking for. Brand new skis for $200-$250 w/o bimdins. The next life's, one times, one life's, sound good for you but others could work. For a binding I'd go with a marker squire, jester, or griffons.
