I don't think there will be a difference between the two as far as your skill level goes. It's more determined by where you ski, what kind of conditions you are generally dealing with, and what kind of terrain you prefer. If you ski in the East or Midwest and groomers are more of your day that off piste, then the Kenja is a better choice. If you are a Western skier and ski varied terrain and conditions, then the Secrets are a better choice. Both are great in multiple conditions and types of terrain, but the Secrets will handle fresh snow better, especially if it's boot deep or more.
