Hi All - I'm 40+ female, 5' 6" and 200lb. I think I'm too heavy for a "women's" ski. I've skied a handful of times, always after a half day lesson. Live near Seattle so ski Whistler, Mt Baker, Stevens Pass. Just skied Snoqualmie Summit West and am told I'm now doing parallel turns - badly - but doing them. Hubby bought me my own boots last month - Atomic B70. We are planning to ski this season and I'd like to buy my own skis but am lost with all the technical pieces. I am enjoying skiing, comfortable on blues, not an aggressive skier (I'm afraid of getting hurt).
My rental skis have been in the 148-152 length. Evogear has an awesome sale currently - it would be great to catch a sweet deal. Hoping for advice regarding ski width, camber/rocker, etc. There's so much to choose from I'm not sure where to start. Is there somewhere else in this forum that already provides this info? Thanks
