I finally convinced my dad to hop off of his volkl AC50s and try something a little more modern. He is 58 and a good (not amazing) skier but has lost some confidence, probably due to a hip replacement last year. He rode the JJs for a couple runs and was wowed enough to realize that it's time for something new, especially when the snow is soft. He needs a ski that skis powder and crud very well, but will still use his old skis for the groomer days. I think he'd like something that still skis groomers well but not a priority. Also, something with rocker at least in the tip and camber underfoot.
What skis should be on his list to demo and ultimately buy?
