I'm somewhat of a beginner skier... only tried it a few times 10 years ago, but I could parallel turn back then. I usually pick up new sports really fast, so I want to get some gear that I can grow into (skill wise) if that makes sense.
This will be mainly for groomers, I think I will stick with the board for those *big* powder days. But if the skis can do well in un-groomed terrain all the better.
While I love to charge down the mountain, I will need this setup to also be OK cruising the beginner runs with my daughters.
I'm also interested in XC skiing, but I assume I will need a completely separate setup for that?
I'm 6'1" and 150lb (sans clothes/shoes) and my feet are super skinny (10.5-11.5)
We will be skiing at Breck and Monach.
So stoked to be getting back on the slopes after being away for soooo long.
I've got around $1500 to spend.
