First off let me start by saying that the advice given on this website is truly top notch, a great community.
I recently made the transition from snowboarding to skiing so my knowledge of skis is non existent. However, I used to be an avid inline skater so skiing comes extremely natural to me. I'm about to move to the east coast in a few months and I could greatly use some advice for figuring out which set of skis to purchase.
Characteristic profile: 5'4" , 150 lbs, top heavy
I'm looking for an all mountain ski for the east coast. This is how I prioritize my ski day:
I will be commuting from Alabama (yes it's going to be a long drive to neighboring states).
The lower the cost the better, but I would certainly like to get some great performance out of these skis as I will be around the east coast for 3-5 years.
It should be noted that I know nothing about measurements as well, so measurements such as height would be greatly appreciated =).
(After reading other blogs, it appears the Volkl Bridge and Salomon twenty twelve are getting alot of praise.)
