I'm looking for a some advice on buying skis. I've done a lot of reading on this site and took the advice of getting boots taken care of first. I went to see Brent Amsbury at Park City Ski Boot and got boots and footbeds.
I had planned on renting or demoing this season but with plans to ski approximately 15-20 days going the rent/demo route will cost me between $600 and $1000 so buying is looking more attractive. I saw a couple of good deals on the 2012 Dynastar Legend 85 but was wondering if this ski is too advanced for me.
Here's a little more info:
Where in the world are you skiing?
--Utah and maybe a couple of days in New Mexico
What kinds of terrain do you prefer
How many days a year do you ski?
--At least 15 but hopefully 20
How advanced are you as a skier?
-- Low intermediate. Took a level 4 lesson at Alta last weekend. Linking parallel turns on Alta's easier blues. More lessons planned.
What's your height and weight?
-- 5'10", 165 lbs.
