I'm 6'3'', 260, early 50's, getting started in skiing. What would be a good ski to start with? I'd prefer to get good skis in the used or end-of-season market.

Welcome to Epic Ski. I recommend you go to a boot fitter and get boots that truly fit your feet before worrying about skis. Once you have boots that fit properly, demo a some skis and see what you like. Go to the "Ask the Boot Guys" forum and read the wikis about fitting and check the list to see what fitter is closest to you. If there isn't one listed, ask and you will likely get some recommendations. Boots are the most important ski gear you will buy.
