Hey all, new to the forum.
I will be skiing mainly eastern US, ie NC & West Virginia (Snowshoe). Maybe a trip out west this year, but doubtful.
In terms of terrain, I prefer groomed runs.
Yearly, I plan on skiing once every week or so.
I am not a very advanced skier. I am currently 23.....and last time I went on a consistent basis was in middle school--so, yeah, it's been a while! Hopefully it will be like riding a bike
Ultimately, I am looking to get back into the sport as a recreational hobby. When I did ski, I always rented my gear.
Now, however, I am looking to get all the equipment and apparel that I need--but on a budget!
I am 6'1", 250lbs.
I am looking for one ski to serve all purposes.
What's most important to me is comfort, comfort, comfort. When I rented gear, my feet would absolutely be killing me by the end of the day.
I have no idea what makes a ski a good performer, or for that matter what would be best for me.
So, yeah---with all that said, I am seeking advice for equipment and apparel, without breaking the bank.
Any advice is appreciated!
