havent skied for 5 years and need some help with my gear

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have some old blizzard duomatic 190cm skis with marker m36 bindings on them. Last time i was skiing my boots shattered on my last run...big problem. I need to know first if new boots can fit my bindings and if not what combination or boots and skis should i get for a budget about $250 i found some on ebay but don't want to buy them because i don't know how to know what boots fit in what bindings...please help.

 

Thanks!!

You need new bindings.     New boots will fit your M36, but you won't find a reputable shop willing to adjust them for you.

Whats your ski ability?

Where do you ski?

What type of terrain do you ski?

 

Your not going to get much for $250.

Get all new gear.   Just replaced my buddies Marker's similar vintage, they were cracking by the DIN screws due to the constant pressure exerted on the plastic body by the heavy duty springs in the bindings.

 

If you don't want to spend a lot you can get some great deal on used demo skis.   My friend just bought some Atomic Vario-flex skis with Neox demo bindings in great shape, for under $400.   There was a ski package there for new boots and skis, for $350...granted its entry level stuff.   For your budget you are probably going to have to get used gear.

Just so you know, people on this forum will read that and think   "Ok, he's a level 6.5 to 7 at best"

Newish boots.    Used skis for sure.     

 

Be aware that in small non-central locales like yours  used gear will almost certainly be waaay overpriced on venues like craigslist.
