I'm looking to buy a pair of skis. I am purchasing them with my own money. I am looking to ride park, 60%, but also ride all mountain, 40%, something that'll ride the park well, but can ride all mountain. Also, something that is quite cheap , under 250$. I am 5'8 and 130 pounds. Is the any size i should get, and what size poles. I used to ski a lot, just getting back into it

The traditional way to size poles is to put your boots on and hold the poles upside down, with the basket directly over your hand and the grip on the floor. The right size is the pole that lets your forearm rest parallel to the ground. You may want to size down a bit from there if you're spending a lot of time in the park, but that's a personal call.
As for the budget, that'll get you something in decent shape used, but nothing new.
