One of my big.questions to ask all you experts is about ski selection, but first I'll introduce myself. I started skiing when I was about 8-9 when my parents got me lessons. I continued skiing for a few years, but only at small hills (Mt. Tom is MA lol). Last year I got back on the slopes for the first time in over 10 years and rekindled my love for it! Luckily, an in-laws owns a ski shop in CT and let's me rent for free, so equipment costs don't effect me. I'm looking into getting my own gear, but I really have no idea where to look. I'm 6'3" and a a "light" 300lbs. I know there aren't "fat folk skis", but I want to make sure whatever I get can stand up to the rigors or taking me down the hill! I currently ski @ small hills still, like Ski Sundown & Wachussett Mtn., with aspirations to make it to a CT hill once this year. As with most, I don't have unlimited budgets, but can get some deals through my family.
I look forward to recommendations & suggestions, & will continue to binge-read all the good info & tips you all continue to post. Happy trails!
