So im looking for a good pair of skis for around 150-225. I havent gone skiing more then 5 times in the past 10 years and would like to go skiing more often and not have to rent them every time. Im 5' 10" and am pretty decent at skiing but i know nothing when it comes to the size of ski or anything i need

Welcome to EpicSki!  Have you thought about buying boots?  That's really the more important first step for having more fun on the slopes.  More likely to require some research to find the best place to go for boots, as well as several hundred dollars of investment.

 

Another option is to consider a season rental until you are sure that you'll ski enough to make buying boots and skis worthwhile.  Would give you a chance to learn more about ski equipment, while avoiding the rental line every time you hit the slopes.

Hi reklaw.  Marznc suggests that you answer the questions posted in Dirtviking's link, e.g., your height, weight, places you like to ski, how you like to ski, etc.  That way people here can get an idea of what kinds of ski to suggest.  If you're a light person, for instance, people will suggest a not-so-stiff ski.  If you ski only on east coast groomers, people (some people) will suggest a narrower ski.  If you ski only western groomers, (some) people will suggested a wider ski.  I suggest that you go back to the linked article and post your answers here.
