My dad is in desperate need for an updated pair of skis and bindings. He has been skiing for about 30 years and is a non-technical intermediate skier that likes to spend his entire day slogging through the mogul fields at Taos. I'm trying to convince him that carving is fun and I think I'm finally starting to convince the old goat. Right now, he's skiing on a cheap Nordia cap ski with very little sidecut and probably around 75mm underfoot. It's just terrible.
Anyway, if anyone out there has a pair of used skis they'd be willing to part with that may be good for a 68 year old, 6'1" / 180 in moderately good shape for a guy his age, I'd like to know. Specifically, I'd like to get him something less-than 90mm underfoot (he's never been on skis wider than 75), with a nice, easy flex that would be good in the bumps, and with a sidecut in the 15m-or-so radius range. If I'm off-base on what I'm looking for, I'm open to suggestions.
I'd like to keep under $350 for the set-up.
Thanks for your help!
