Last year I made the switch from snowboarding to skiing and absolutely loved it. So much that I have just outfitted myself with all the gear for this year's season. Having just stepped through the door into the world of all things ski, I was a less than informed consumer when making my purchases. Here is my dilema that I hope someone can assist with.
Although I only started skiing last year (4 times), I guess I would consider myself to be a novice intermediate as I felt comfortable on the skis and performed pretty well (according to skier friends). I like skiing in a casual style but quick at times.
A local shop helped me pick out a pair of 2014 Head Rev 80 Pro skis. The sales dude (who was very nice BTW), stated that these skis would suit me as I wouldn't outgrow them.
The issue is that after purchasing the skis, I noticed on Head's website that this model is designed for the following:
|Skill||very good skiers|
|Terrain||versatile, piste and off-piste|
very good skiing technique
I do not resemble the above descriptions at all (and may never).
Did I get the wrong ski? Will they be difficult to ski?
Thanks for any advice.
