Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a decent pair of skis, I have always just rented before.
~ I am a pretty good skier (intermediate) I can do blue's easily and black diamonds ok.
~ I only ski at ski resorts and they are usually icy like 70% icy and 30% a with some fluff.
~ I want to start learning how to do tricks in the park and at the same time I want to master doing black diamonds.
~ I'm 5'10" and weigh 165
As of now I am not really an aggressive skier. I don't ski fast down the black diamonds, I try to turn as much as possible to keep my speed down because I feel very unstable at high speeds, but I am thinking (hoping lol) that it's because of the cheap rental skis.
So some basic requirements it needs to be cheaper than $500, and have a full twin tip. What type of rocker/chamber type you think is best for me? What is a good width?
I am thinking about the k2 shreditor 92 but it seems a little more geared for powdery snow than the compact snow at the resort.
