So last year I took the plunge and got some ski boots (technica something or other-- I think possibly these: http://www.evo.com/outlet/alpine-ski-boots/tecnica-phoenix-14-hvl-2012.aspx#image=45385.Color.Hardgoods_TransSolarRedBlack_Image.jpg ). This year, Ive decided to grab some skis to complete the set.
I live on the east coast and do a lot of the DC Metro area slopes, but about once a year we head out to SLC and hit up the slopes out there. Id say im intermediate... normally we do double black stuff, but I sometimes have trouble with moguls. I still turn with my ankle but Im learning to do it by shifting my weight. Im kind of looking for something that will be a good all-around ski-- handles groomed decently, but can do off- trail and powder as well.
Im kind of hoping to keep it in the $300 range, and really have no idea to look for. Obviously it doesnt need to be the best thing ever-- I have been happy skiing on rentals, so Im not sure how picky it makes sense to be. If possible, included bindings would be nice, but Im not sure whether thats realistic or not.
Im 6'7 and around 210 lbs, and I believe ive been doing 180-190 length rentals, so Id probably want around 190s.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
