I agree the K2 Apache series
is a great collection of skis - they range from the value packed HAWK
to the PONTOON - what K2 calls 'the ultimate powder tool'.
makes some great boots but the FALCON
and the race boots run narrow and most of the rest of the line runs quite a bit wider.
It sounds like from your post you are looking for what is typically classified as 'All-Mountain' gear. Meaning you are tackling a wide variety of terrain and conditions.
It is my feeling that your boots are the most important peice of your equipment as it is what you use to manipulate your ski. All-Mountain boots tend to be a little softer, in the 85-110 flex range but fit is the most important thing to consider. As I said, the Salomon Falcon and Impact both run fairly narrow as does anything with a 100 mm last while while anything in the 98 mm and below range is considered a high performance boot in need of a custom fit - often refered to as a 'plug' boot. Nordica
boots are built in the mid range - around 102mm and Tecnica HVL
boots and the Head Edge boots
tend to run a bit wider -clser to 104 mm.
It is important to know your foot - wide, mid or narrow then look for a boot that will work. Most websites will have this info and a custom fit in a quality shop can help you to fine tune it just for your foot.
For skis search in the All-Mountain catagories. Some of my favorites are the K2 Crossfire
and the Volkl AC30
Hope that helps!
See ya on the slopes!
