I'm 5'6 140 lbs, 20 years old.
I started skiing around 9 and skied 30-40 days each season for about 5 or 6 years but recently have stopped for 5 years.
This year I'm getting back into it, and I'm completely overwhelmed by the choices of skis on the market!
I ski exclusively in Whistler and ski mostly groomed runs.
I don't really have a budget but I'm looking for the new pair of skis last me 5ish years. I am an intermediate skier, mostly blues, some blacks. I would like to improve my technique though.
In my local store, they only carry. Based on this list, which ones should I consider? (our stores don't allow demoing)
Atomic Affinity Pure
K2 Free Luv
Volkl Attiva Viento
Rossignol Temptation 76
Head Mya 4
Atomic Affinity Air
Volkl Attiva Pluma
Rossignol Temptation 74
Salomon Origins Lagoon
Head Mya 3
Atomic Cloud 6
I don't know if this info is relevant but for boots I'm probably going to get the Nordica Hot Rod 7.0s, they seem to feel the best on me whereas the Salomon boots and Head boots I tried were too wide.
