I have been skiing on some K2 Recons for the last 4-5 years (only get out 12-15 days/yr) and while they may not be the coolest skis on the mountain I think they are solid and I have really enjoyed them. But after skiing them in Vail last Febuary (got 30+inches over 4 days) I'm thinking about picking up something that will do a little better in fresh snow. Would these be a good pick? Any other recommendations? Thanks.

If you are talking days on days of powder, you would be well served with a rockered ski that is at least 108 underfoot, and I believe the fatter the better. At it's biggest, this is only 103 underfoot and a 190 is a lot of ski. But, it would be more versatile. If you opt for this size, also consider the Blizzard Bonafide. If you decide to go with a wider waist, the Volkl Gotama or the Blizzard Cochise would be great choices.
