Buying first pair advice

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to buy a pair of skis. I'm moving to north Carolina in a few months and want to buy a pair of skis. I go out west once a year. But I want a ski that Is twin tip all mountian but can do groomed fake snow and I know that's hard to find a twin tip that can do that. Any ideas.

By fake snow, do you mean man-made or indoor stuff?

What level skier are you?

Why do you want twin tips?

Welcome to EpicSki!  Are you thinking of buying gear in NC or in GA?

 

If you haven't already, check out the EpicSki articles about buying skis and boots (click on Articles on the menu bar).

You can't buy "a pair." You gotta grow 'em. Or be born with 'em.

Big and brass, or steel, work well out West. But careful of the swing weight.

Volkl Bridge, Rossi Sin 7 and Rossi Smash 7 are a few skis to look into.
