I'm looking to get back into skiing after a broken femur. (Snowboarder forgot to remove his boot from the binding when getting off the lift, he twisted his board which was stuck between my skis.) Long story short, I have a pair or carvers but I'm now looking for a nice pair of skis to be some what versatile but fun in the park. I want to get excited about skiing again!
I am 5'11 155lbs and would consider myself intermediate. Would a 167cm rockered ski be a good to start with? I'd like to get comfortable skiing backwards and want a forgiving ski that would be easy for learning.
I'm considering the Rossignol Scimitars 167cm
Waist Width: 99mm
Tip/Waist/Tail Widths: 129/99/122
Tail Profile: Twin
Rocker: Full Rocker
Turn Radius: 21-29
The Scimitars are fully rockered so I'm wondering if they might be too short. I'd rather start shorter and get comfortable.
