I just returned to skiing last year after a long layoff because I needed to keep an eye on my 8 year old who just started snowboarding last year. Seems in the 12 years or so that I had not skied, technology changed quite a bit.
I quit skiing back in the late 90s due to a knee injury while playing hockey. Was basically afraid to make it worse. Got out there on rentals last year 5 or 6 times and all was well. I decided to get season passes for me and my son this year as we live 5 minutes from a little place in the Poconos and will be able to go after school and evenings during the week.
I'm 6'3" and ~235 lbs
Intermediate advanced skier. I used to be an aggressive skier but age and fitness seem to have eroded that a bit. Mostly just cruising now and pretty much on groomed trails. ;)
I'm in NE PA and will be doing a fair bit of night skiing. I expect ice, slush and if we are lucky, the occasional snowfall.
I have poles and boots which I used with rentals last year and they are in good shape. Just looking for some new skis without breaking the bank.
Any recommendations? I'm not even sure where to start.
