I'm 18 years old from England, 80ish kg and ski mainly back country, powder and park (not much piste). I already have technica bushwacker airshells (size 12 UK).
I am going to do a ski season in Whistler next season and have been told to buy my skis out there. I am planning to become a level two instructor. I was planning to get some Line Sir Francis Bacons out there for general use (I mainly ski park, pow and bock country - minimum slope time), but know I need some groomers to do the course on.
However i know a ski shop that is closing down this week and they sent be this price list:
Thanks for getting in touch today.
I have had a word with Daniel and we have some excellent alternatives to the Line, Sir Francis Bacons, please see the details below:
· Rossignol Sick Bird – 185cm including Rossignol Freeride bindings – 110 XL @ £245
· Rossignol S3 – 178cm or 186cm including Rossignol Freeride bindings – 110XL @ £299
· Salomon Shogun – 182cm including Rossignol Freeride bindings – 110XL @ £349
· Rossignol S7 – 178cm or 188cm including Rossignol Freeride bindings – 110XL @ £399
· Armada JJ – 185cm including Rossignol Freeride bindings – 110XL @ £409
With regards to your on piste skis, we have the following skis available at COST PRICE:
· Rossignol Bandit Sc80 – 174cm including bindings @ £149
· Rossignol Experience 83 – 176cm including bindings @ £279
· Rossignol Experience 88 – 176cm or 186cm including bindings @ £319
· Head Chip 66 – 176cm including bindings @ £339
The first skis would be my choice as they offer unbeatable value for money at just £149 for a £500 ski.
These seemed like amazing deals so was thinking about getting some of these and taking them out to Canada...
Any advice about whether that is a good idea and if so which of these to consider would be much appreciated.
(AS THE SHOP IS CLOSING DOWN AT THIS WEEK PLEASE REPLY ASAP AS I NEED TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THEM ON THURSDAY AT THE LATEST!)
thanks in advance
