I'm 5'9, 175 Lbs. I have a fairly athletic constitution.
Thinking about buying the a pair of VOLKL AC 30's, 2011 edition., 170 cm's long.
Most of my skiing is done on piste, groomed snow. I'd like to start experimenting with off-piste skiing in the future.
I've been skiing for 5 years now. Somewhere around 20-30 days a years.
My approach to skiing is a more aggressive one.
I own a pair of Salomon Impact 8 fitted boots which I find a bit stiff. Previously I has a pair of a Nordica Speedmachine 8.
My previous skis were a Salomon X-wing 160cms and an Atomic SX 11 170cms which I found a bit to heavy.
The hardest part for me is evaluating my own level. I know what a beginner is, we are were one at some point. Intermediate is also clear. But the border between intermediate, advanced and expert is a mistery for me :)
Here is a small video of me, about 2 years ago (skiing on the sx 11's). Do you think that the VOLKLs will fit me, or should I look for something else?
(Don't worry, it's a public facebook video, don't have it elsewhere sorry)
Thanks in advance,
