Best budget skis new or used

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been skiing for about 6 years now and 2 years ago I bought a pair of blades. I did like them a lot but you cant do jumps well for them and they just don't go as fast as the longer skis do. I was wondering what the best ski choice would be for me with a $200 budget. I would like a ski that is 170-180. I already have all the other equipment that i need. Thanks!

$200 is pushing it , especially if you're including bindings -- you'll probably end up having to buy a used pair at that price point.  Check your local classifieds and do some research on the skis you happen to find at that price point.  evo.com / skis.com are good places to check the reviews.

 

Good luck in finding what you need.

More information on what type of skiing you plan to do (on piste, powder, park, etc)  would be helpful in tailoring a response to your specific use case.  

 

If you're looking for an all mountain ski, one that received good reviews on Epicski several years ago is the Nordica Hot Rod series (Nitrous and Top Fuel).  Used skis from the Hot Rod line can be found on ebay for < $200.

I plan on being mostly on groom trails and a little in the park. Do these skis look like they would be good for that?

If they are good which one would be better? Thanks again!
