First off I'd like to say this looks like a great fun community and I am glad to be joining it. I live in NorCal and used to ski when I was 10 years old to probably 12. After just finishing college I am now 24 getting back into skiing just because I have missed it and all my friends have been going for years to Lake Tahoe resorts.
I would rate my skill level still at a beginner however this upcoming winter season I am looking to progress into the intermediate level. I have an epic ski pass to Northstar, Heavenly, and Kirkwood so I will be going every weekend that I can as long as work permits.
I just bought new Rossignol boots, that had not been worn, fit perfectly for me and not to mention got them for 10$ at an REI gearsale. Awesome! Anyways, I am looking to get skiis since it would be cheaper than to rent. I have read the thread about buying skiis on here and I have been doing research on the internet and I have been looking at getting the Rossignol Experience 74 with Xelium 100 bindings at 166cm. Is that right on sizing? I am 5 foot 7-8 inches and weigh 165 usually.
If anybody could suggest others that would be cool too, or if those skiis are fine let me know.
