Beginner's Zone, guess that's for me. I've decided to start skiing this year, been thinking about it for a long time. I'm starting as an almost complete newbie. I used to go skiing with my mom and dad as a kid, a few times anyway, the last time though I actually broke my leg going UP the hill, was on the rope tow and my ski hit a patch of mud and twisted my leg around. I'll probably be cross country skiing mostly, but there are some skiing slopes within distance. I'll be asking some questions, especially about gear at first, and where to get it, I have some ski stuff but it's about 50 years old I guess. Nice looking forum.
Newbie just to say hi
Yeah, just from what I've seen on this forum so far, I think modern equipment is going to make one heck of a difference. You'd probably laugh at some of the old stuff I found in my parents garage. I've got an old pair of ski pants that might just be back in style. I wonder if they're worth anything?
