A couple of questions: Are you mostly (or solely) skiing on groomed tracks? If so, look for a ski with the widest dimension between 50 & 59mm. 59mm skis would be the most versatile, working well in a track and giving enough float/stability for easy off-trail skiing. Atomic XCruise 55 or 59 & Salomon Snowscape 7 are good models. For all in-track skiing, go narrower. They will be lighter and faster. If all your skiing is off-trail and in deeper snow, you may want to go with a wider ski, poss. w/ metal edges and a SNS-BC or NNN-BC binding.
