Looking to Add to the Quiver......NEED HELP!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, I hope everyone has had a good summer and is ready to get back on the slopes (I know I am).  But I've been saving up some money possibly for a new pair of skis and would like some input as to what would be my best bet.  I'm approximately 6'2 and 190 lbs, athletic build, 17 years old looking for something to add to my Rossi CX80's.  I instruct (hoping for my level 2 this winter) at a small hill in Ohio so a lot of my skiing will be taking place there.  When I'm not at the local hill I'm typically at Holiday Valley, NY, Peek N Peak, NY, and Seven Springs, PA.  Also I am a senior currently and am looking at going to school up north (VT or NH) or out west (CO or UT) and instructing there as well.  I ski probably at a 7 or an 8.  With all of this info in mind, what should I add to my quiver?  I am looking primarily right now at a 165 FIS SL ski for the boilerplate days and also to get a few more turns in on the 250 ft hill I will be doing a lot of skiing at, but am open to any suggestions.  Another possiblilty is getting something a little softer and less aggressive for the bumps, trees, etc.  Like I said, ANY input is appreciated and will be considered.  Thanx, Tyler.

Oh, and one more possiblity.... I am on 2008 Nordica Speedmachine 10's on 110 flex currently.  I could always just forget about a ski and get some new boots?  Thanx, Tyler.

A few comments. With your build, why are you looking at a 165 ski? I was thinking something 185ish that has great bite on hard snow. Also, if all you have to work with is a 250 ft hill, does it really matter?  Just read the reviews here from guys your size, do a little google searching on what they liked and see where that takes you.
