This is my second noob ploy to the ski gods, see first here:
I've been off skis for a few years, and I'm gearing up again. I managed to find a great deal on some previously enjoyed Elan Magfire 82Ti's 168's, so I picked them up.
I'm 5'10" and about 165lbs, I'm not sure what level I'm at, but I've been skiing since I could stand. I'm going to be skiing east coast conditions pretty much exclusively (Crappy Ontario Conditions with a trip to Quebec hopefully), so I want something good for groomers, crud, icy-conditions. I've read lots of reviews on here and it seems like this is a good ski overall. I'm hoping that these will work out for me, despite the fact that they are probably a tiny bit short. What do you guys think? Will these eat me alive?
