I have been snowboarding the past 2 years and have boarded about 30 days and am pretty solid now (blacks/trees etc).
I want to try skiing when conditions are great and I'm forced to do groomers. I've skiied about 5 times in my life and could do some blue runs, but just had to control my speed so I didn't lose control.
I am going to the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Expo in Denver next month and will be looking for some gear from last year. Has anyone ever been to this expo? What should I expect.
Alright, let's get to it, here is my info:
Where in the world are you skiing?
Colorado mostly (breck, keystone, beaver creek, vail)
What kinds of terrain do you prefer (groomed runs, moguls, race course, park'n'pipe, trees, steeps, backcountry/sidecountry)
My intent is to snowboard mostly on powder days and ski on groomer days. That being said, I would like to get an good all around pair of skis that wont completely suck if there is some fresh. One that I have been considering is the Sir Francis Bacon if I can find last years.
How many days a year do you ski?
I usually do 15-20. I expect I'll ski at least 10-15 days this year.
How advanced are you as a skier?
Beginner, but I don't want a ski I would outgrow quickly. Looking for probably getting an intermediate-adv setup
What's your height and weight?
