I am a male who turns 17 years old in a month. I am about 5' 8" or 5' 9" tall and very skinny at 125 pounds. This past winter was my first season skiing, and now I am looking to buy my own pair of skis for the years to come. I got to go about 15 times last season. When I first started, I was really bad and couldn't even turn or stop. I gradually got better, and now I can do every slope at my local mountain (Montage Mountain in PA) except one of the double black diamonds. However, I can do every other slope including two other double black diamonds, relatively comfortably and rarely falling. I even got to go to Killington on a school ski club field trip and I was able to do all the intermediate terrain there pretty easily and struggled on Skye Lark (a black diamond) both times I went down. I would say I'm on the level inbetween intermediate and advanced.
I am not sure what I'm really looking for in skis. I am a pretty aggressive skiier. I ski at a faster speed than most of those around me, and do a lot of carving and quick turns. I also enjoy going off jumps and riding boxes, but only enough to get maybe 2 feet in the air. I don't do any crazy tricks or rails. I don't go through any really deep snow or glades very often, but I would like to be able to go through deeper snow if I had to without sinking. But I think I would be fine to even on shorter skiis anyways just because I'm so light.
The budget isn't really a concern, if I like a particular pair of skis I will be willing to pay more. Of course cheaper is better, and I can't really spend $1,500 on a pair either.
What do you recommend?
