A longtime ago I was the definition of a true bum, but I hurt myself in '84. So the years go by and I now find myself fit and skiing again. I tossed the old equipment years ago and I plan on doing some serious research but the season is short and I have to get off the rentals! So indulge me if you can and have fun giving me your best shot at what I need.
I skied all over the world in the '80's and my reawakening skill is still solid, I was a hardcore (pardon me) hot dogger in the day and could ski anything. No ballet anymore but more hard carving and steep, I want control, speed and still enough flex to bounce a bit. I have little knowledge and understanding of the new equipment (working on it though).
Northern Michigan, but West too
Skill: A rusty but once expert skier restarting after 25 years.
(I skied Parsenn top to bottom in '80 :D )
What ski should I buy? Please feel free to including length, width etc. Just some suggestions so I have a place to start at the shop.
If it were 1983 I would be looking at a 185-195 GS ski (if that helps?).
