EDIT: K2 El Camino Skis
I've been skiing for years, all on rentals. I'm a decent intermediate skier who likes to go off the groomed a bit, and do some small (emphasis on small) jumps. I've always wanted some skis of my own, and I just picked up some $45 skis off of ebay. They're K2 El Caminos with a sick retro paint scheme - but I saw that these skis are old, like the design came out in the 90's. I have little to no knowledge about ski gear, but these skis and bindings were in great shape, so I jumped on them. I have been renting late-model skis. Will these El Caminos be different feeling and performing? Also, will they work for my applications and in the often-shady conditions of southern skiing (Indiana)? I was trying to avoid old gear like the long skinny things from the 80's... did I get just that? Any advice please!!!
