Which skis to get back into skiing? [Montana]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all, New here. I haven't skied in about 10 years. Would like to get back into it. Used to ski hard, steep and deep, bumps, fast cruisers, did it all. Found I loved the Rossignol GS skis.  Went through many pair of those. Demoed a few diferent skis each year, but never liked anything as well as the Rossi's. Looking to buy boots that fit my feet first and go from there. I have never been on the shaped skis. Skiing Montana areas, powder and packed, rarely ice. Looking for a do it all type ski. I love making technically perfect turns in everything at high speeds.

So what skis should I be looking at. 20 below zero today, wouldn't be at the mountain even if I had the equipment.

Thanks, MikeB

I also had my first introduction to the new shapely design of skis after a several year hiatus from skiing.  Probably most beneficial way to go in this situation is to rent once or twice get a better idea what length and construction style you prefer for the modern skis.  Maybe try one set with a narrow-ish waist (70-80) and another set in the mid-fat range (about 80-100) waist.  See which feels best on your feet.

Where are you? The reason I ask is demo day at Whitefish is next weekend.

Of course, boots first.
