First off, New guy here. Hello!
I am trying to pick a ski for myself, but need a little help.
First trouble, having never taken a class, i don't know my ski ability. That sounds dumb. Here in the mid-atlantic, I comfortably ski everything we have. I thought i was really something before going to Vermont and finding out a double black in WV or PA, is a lot different. HA! I did fine on everything there and did ok on a few tree runs. I try my luck with a jib here and there but thats another comedy! I consider myself more advanced but I don't do well on moguls at all! I do venture off the cat-trax though.
Anyway, I am currently on a set of Line - Masterminds, 2011, 157cm. I think they may be a little short as I am 5'9 and 150lbs. I like the general design but i feel like it wonders in the crud and fluff. It also feels a little unstable on landing at higher speeds. I love the flex though.
Now to add to this equation, I am moving to Colorado in a week. I have my eye on the Line - Blend or Chronics but don't want to dump money on a setup I'll be swapping out next season.
Any direction on this would be awesome. Binding suggestion would be epic too!
