First time posting! Nice forum ya'll have here.
Anyways, I am looking to buy my first set of skis, and have been a bit overwhelmed with all the different brands, styles, rockers, bindings, etc etc., so I was hoping to get a little guidance on the matter! I went ahead and copped some Atomic Hawx-80's size 28.5, if that makes a difference.
Where in the world are you skiing?
- I live in Boulder, CO and will most likely grab a Epic Local Pass this season
What kinds of terrain do you prefer (groomed runs, moguls, race course, park'n'pipe, trees, steeps, backcountry/sidecountry)
- I am looking for an all mountain ski that i can continue to learn on groomed runs with, but have the option to go backside with some buddies if the opportunity presents itself. I'd also like to keep the price down a bit (<$400 w/ bindings) so i can beat them up for a couple seasons before getting something a little more advanced once i have progressed more.
How many days a year do you ski?
- As much as I can get away with... maybe 3-5 times a month
How advanced are you as a skier?
What's your height and weight?
- 6'3" 250lbs
I'm a total noob on the subject, so any help you wonderful forum goers can offer would be greatly appreciated!
