Background - Right now I'm in Philly but have skied and instructed seasons out in Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe. Advanced level, not quite expert. Love to carve.
Aside from my Armadas, I love my Volkl 5 Stars Supersport from 06! This weekend, one of the front bindings cracked on the side.
1st question - Is that an easy replacement? Is it worth investing on that ski? Time to upgrade...
2nd point. I bought a pair of 2011 Salomon Mission RS8 boots, that still need breaking in. Is that too inferior to my skill level? How bad? Or hopefully all good?
3rd - Given the broken bindings and all, I've been researching a lot today. Looks like this is a great deal - http://www.evo.com/outlet/skis/dynastar-speed-course-nx12-fluid-bindings.aspx#image=48170.Size.LengthCM_184_Image.jpg . Are those bindings really bad? Will these skis be ready to ski on? Or what do I need to do?
Any other options you'd recommend I check out?
I know my questions are not ideally formulated, I just need some direction.
Thanks in advance!!
