Help me find the right ski!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am new to this community!  

Since 2010 winter, I began to really appreciate skiing. 

I learned skiing since I was a kindergartener.

I took private lessons during last two years and consider myself in the intermediate stage. 

 

gender: Female

Height: 5'5" 

Weight: 118 lbs

Turn radius: somewhere between short and large turns! 

 

This winter, finally I decided to get the entire ski gears. 

I don't have much knowledge in gears. It would be great if anyone can give me some recommendations?   My budget  is $1000. 

 

Thanks!

Go get some boots that fit really well. Then come back and let us know how much money you have left from your budget. Boots matter way more than skis do.

Thanks for the quick reply! 

Can you recommend boots that are generally well known as the "good boots" for intermediates? 

I'm in Seoul, Korea so I'm not sure if shops will have certified boot fitter... 

I just want to have a general idea of boots that I should be looking for. 

I'm looking for not too loose boots. I do "ok" short turns but eventually I'd like to master carving. Hope this can narrow down the options.. Thanks!

the best way to find the right boot for you is to go to a  good shop and have them fit you for your ability, size and foot shape.

 

Its hard to say what's going to fit you best without seeing you.

I lost my right ski once, that really sucked. You're best off waiting for Spring, really. Oh, sorry, you meant...
