What should I choose

post #1 of 4

Hey everyone. I am new to the whole forum based advice thing, so if I say something "unorthodox", don't hate me for it smile.gif.


You have all seen these before, but I just can't get my finger on it. I am buying my first ever pair of skis (and all the things that come with it: bindings, poles, etc.) I have looked at a couple, including volkl ac30/50, blizzard magnum 7.4/7.6. I am 5'6" and weigh about 125 lbs. I am fairly advanced and prefer groomed slopes over powder, but also like moguls. If you can recommend one of these over the other or another ski altogether, that would be great!

You don't mention boots, which are way more important than skis.  With properly fitted boots(done by a bootfitter) I can ski any ski and most likely have a good time.  With ill-fitting boots, I won't have a very good time no what ski I'm on.

volkl AC30 (which are no longer made) , but you may also want to try the K2 Aftershock, it's softer for the bumps.

Where I live, there is going to be a big pre-season blowout on ski equipment, including boots, so I'll have people there recommend me a pair and I will try on a lot. Skis, however, I won't be able to tell how good they are until I go on the mountain (I don't think I will get the opportunity to demo any). That's why I'm asking for ski and binding advice, not boots.
