Last time I skied was over 10 years ago while in college and I was hitting the slopes 25-35 days per year. In my senior year I was on the skis below and I probably only put 3-5 days on each set that last season.
I was a level 8 skier at that time and had skied since I was 7 years old as my folks had a place a Loon.
The skis I have are Dynastar Skicross 66 170s which are 107/66/94 on Look Pivot 12 bindings and Salomon Superaxe Equipe 3V on plated Tyrolia D8 binding which I have no idea of their measurements. Both pairs were stored properly and are in like new shape and the bindings were checked for proper release at my local ski shop last season when I was considering a trip at that time.
Here I am 10 years later and an avid cyclist that is looking to give skiing another go at the northeast resorts. I definitely plan to invest in new boots and insoles (my old Atomic Beta Race 10.50s are probably too stiff for me now given my skill erosion from not skiing for 10 years) but am apprehensive about forking over the cash for "modern" skis.
Has the experience truly changed that drastically with the new "fat" skis where I can't get a season out of the skis I have?
