Agree, take a lesson or two. If your still on blues and greens, a lesson is going to help you improve much more then skis. You already have good skis.
Lot talk about boots, Have you been to a boot fitter and had him make sure you in the correct boot ?
Don't know if you know...Boots are the most important part !
Get foot beds. Oh find a great boot fitter, not just some guy at some shop. A great boot fitter will do more for your skiing then new skis.
I just got new Langes RX120's. Been going to the same fitter for 20 years. He wasn't there when I walked in the shop. I told one of the new shop tech's that Shon normally, he said he would get me someone. The boot fitter was new to the shop and me. I told him Shon normally takes care of me, he proceeded to tell me his back ground and why Shon hired him to be the shop trainer. When I hread he had worked for Greg Hoffman for 10 years, I said ok let's do this.
He went through the same process Shon has every time. Examines my feet, check's my legs, watch's me walk, does a knee alignment, ask me what my ski stance is, how wide my feet are when I ski, then recommended a few boot's and said his first choice for me would be the Lange.
After having the boot on for about 20 minutes, he put my foot beds in them and did a the cuff alignment.
Next day on the hill, I found I could finish my turns better, I could feel the tails of the skis and hold them from skidding longer.
Finishing my turns has been a problem for me for a long time. I spent a weekend taking a Epicski clinic at Stowe back in 2004 with Mike Rogan, he said finishing my turns was something I needed to work on.
I can now do that. These Lange's fit tighter in the heels then my Tecinca's even with all the packing.
