Hi everyone! Thank you in advance for your opinions. I am in the market for my first pair of skis. I want to be done with renting! :)
I will be skiing in the northeast on groomed trails. I think I would be considered intermediate. I can ski most blues, but I get nervous on the blues if the conditions aren't great. I prefer to ski at slow to moderate speeds, but perhaps I will get more comfortable at higher speeds as my skills improve. Now that my youngest child is almost four, our hope and intention is to ski around 10-13 times per season. I hope that with some lessons and frequent practice, I will build my confidence. I am 5'3" and weigh 133lbs.
From what I have read online, the suggestion seems to be that I go with a 74mm waist and perhaps around 146cm length. Does that sound about right? Here are some of the skis I am considering. I would appreciate any feedback on these, as well as any specific suggestions.
Rossignol Temptation 74
K2 SuperSweet 74
Atomic Affinity Air Ski System
Again, thank you SO much!
