Hi everyone! I found this forum when searching for reviews of the Atomic Cloud 9 and the K2 Luv Machine. I’ve found great reviews of both skis. I’m 36 years old and I’ve been skiing since I was 3, but I’m far from an expert. I only make it up for about 3-6 ski days a year. I mostly ski Mammoth and Tahoe, so Sierra Cement. I’m least comfortable on ice and hard pack, so I’d love a ski that helps me in that area. I ski mostly blue-blacks and blacks, depending on my company, and stick mostly to groomers although I love moguls too. Any thoughts on which ski would be better for me? Both are on sale at my local shop, in my length, where I have a gift card. FWIW, I’ve been renting for many years, and I’ve loved the K2s I’ve demoed in the past. Thanks in advance!
