First off thanks so much if you can help answer a couple of questions.
I'm buying used skis for my wife this year. She has taken lessons once two years ago so is a definite beginner but she's game to learn and improve. She is active and fit, 5' 1" and 100 lbs.
I was hoping someone could advise me on good skiis for her.
I'm looking at either
Rossignol Bandit 70 jr skis with bindings and poles for $50
Salomon 10T 3V skis for $60 (with "mint condition" Rossignol Sapphire boots for an extra $30). The one thing about these skis is they have that weird plastic arrow/chevron attachment in front of the toe....what's this for ?
Anyhow....I suppose I'm also asking you to tell me the better value purchase but essentially I want to know which skis make more sense for a beginner skiier. She has boots - we bought Rossignol Radical Jr 2s in great condition last week for her - but I'm a sucker for a good deal and could try selling one or the other....
Please advise me if you can.
Much appreciated !
