My kids have started skiing, and now I am coming back to it after 20 years.
I raced in HS and 1 year of college. So once upon a time.....
Anyways, I rented some skis the first year that my kids started to just to get them out on the hill.
Last year, I thought I was going to do some bar league racing and I bougt a pair of Salomon Race Room GS skis from someone who was sponsered.
The GS skis are great, but they want to make a certain radius turn and that is it. Super for turning 6 or 7 times down the hill, but then you are at the bottom and times up.
I still like to mix it up with some quick snappy turns and burn out some longer turns as well.
The GS skis are just to slow from edge to edge to have fun with.
I've been told if I buy SL skis I will be unhappy at the other extreme end of the spectrum. I guess they only max out at 155 now??
So.... what are the right skis to look at for midwestern skiing on manmade snow for someone that has done a lot of skiing in the past.
The rentals were the first parabolic skis I strapped on in my life. It was pretty hillarious. They want to start a turn like nothing I had ever experieced, but they were mushy soft and had no snap at all coming out of the turns.
I'm 6' tall and 200 pounds.
Thanks for any input. Happy New Year
