I am new here and also new to skiing. I have started learning last year. I took a couple of classes since I am not a fan of the idea of throwing myself on the slope unprepared.
I got to the point where I don't need to break in "pizza" style anymore, but I am not totally in control of my turns. The main issue being, I lift my down ski and I do have a bit of a tendency to lean backwards.
I am from Romania and last year I have lost a lot of time with renting equipment. Can't quite tell if the renters have anything that good.
So I decided to buy boots and skis.
The boots I chose are Salomon X Pro 70.
As for skis, that's where I lost myself in all the research. I found a Black Friday offer for Atomic Affinty Storm with XTO 10 bindings. I bought them because they seemed to have features like: wood core, sidewall under foot and capped on tip and tail, a turn radius of 14.7 for a size of 151. All Atomic skis have 15% rocker, 85% camber. Not to forget that I am 5.6 and 95lbs. For that reason I thought I should choose a shorter ski.
The big problem is that everywhere they recommend these skis for intermediate to advanced skiers.
What should I do? I can return them. How would such skis affect my learning?
Thank you a lot!
