After a bit of a hiatus (~10 years) I'm hoping to get back into skiing. I used to ski a lot in Quebec and N.E., but haven't done any serious skiing in years (I've been snowboarding for the most part). I'm living on the West Coast now and frequently go to Whistler. I usually try to get at least a day on skis every year when I can borrow a pair from friends and after a couple days this year I've decided that I want to get my own pair so that I can get out as often as I want.
I'm 6'1", 210 lbs and am looking for something that is a decent all-mountain since the conditions can vary quite a bit from waste-deep powder to skied out and hard-packed in a day. I'm hoping to pick up a pair at an end-of-season sale as I'm not looking to spend a fortune (under $700 with bindings), but for the right skis I'll be willing to pay more as I take excellent care of my gear. Feel free to ask any more questions to get whatever info you may need out of me to make a better recommendation.
Thanks in advance pros!
