Hi people. Is it too late in the season to be looking at buying skis? If not...

I'm 177cm tall, 62kg and I can do anything upto single black diamond runs.
I mostly ski at Whakapapa 95% of the time, turoa the rest of the time.

I'm wanting a ski that will let me do a bit of everything, I'm average at jumping now, but I would like to get some lessons and learn to 360 and ride switch.
Budget is a issue 'cause the GT needs some repairs, so not wanting to more than around 250$
Are any of these suitable for me?
Salomon Verse 6

Salomon Scream 8 pilot

Nordica Hot Rod Afterburner

Which of these skis would be best?
Cheers.

The verses are x rental skis. avoid
the scream 8's are nothing special, but they're your size and being skinny in the waist will be ok on that dirty ice you suffer from up there.
The afterburners have better all mountain dimensions and shape, and are the pick of the bunch, but they're way too big for you.

If you're serious about riding switch you need a proper twin tip or jib ski, but considering you've just described yourself as basically an intermediate skiier there's not much point bothering with a proper jib ski. Might as well learn to ski properly forwards before you try anything fancy. Of those the scream 8's are your best option. Check what size they've been mounted for and how many times they've been drilled. If they've already been drilled twice and you're going to need a remount then avoid.

Yeah what J2 hyde said, skinny waist ski is the way to go for ruapheu, I wouldn't be so worried about ex rental or ex demo so long as u can get a good look at them first, ie bases and edges arn't fucked, but if your going to start jibbing you will fuck the edges anyway and will make that glistening hard pack sketch as hell to ski.

I'm a similar build to yourself and have a pair of 170 atomic 9.18 for sale, 64 underfoot, that have handled anything the ice ring of a mountain has chucked at them . You can have for peanuts if you want pm, if intrested,

Hmm... After looking again I have concluded that there are no decent twin tips under $250, so I've put the budget upto $400, or $450 if they're local.

What about these?:

Looks good, much better than the others you were looking at. Dimensions and size should suit you fine. If you take a monopoint sized boot 27 or bigger you wont need to remount either which is very handy.
