So this is my first forum post, woot woot! Anyways, I've decided that this Christmas will finally be the one I somehow obtain a pair of skis. I've gone skiing only a handful of times over the past few years due to my time schedule, but I love it and it looks like there is a chance I will end up in the Seattle region. I've always rented skis, and done fine with them, but I really want a pair to call my own and learn the ins and outs of. That being said, the little knowledge I have of skis I have gleamed off of buyer guides and my limited personal experiences. I understand how camber/rocker works, but not necessarily which setup would be best for my taste. I believe my ski style would be best suited with a pair of all-mountain skis. I enjoy almost all aspects of the mountain and would like to have skis that are easily adaptable to different environments. Price is not an issue per say, but I don't plan on racing or doing anything too crazy, so I don't need top of the line gear.
Any suggestions on boots/bindings would be helpful too. I'm 6'4'' and weigh 180 lbs. If you don't feel like typing copious amounts of information I would appreciate any and all links so I can research on my own. I just want to make sure when I finally pick my setup I am making the right decision.
Thanks in advance!
edit: shoe size - 12, I tend to stay on groomed trails and I enjoy carving more so than flying down the mountain. The Volkl RTM 80 interests me.
