Alright so I am looking to buy my first set of real skis but don't really know what to get. I previously owned a set of atomic junior skis but those no longer work for me.
so basically i am 18, 5'4", 140 lbs. I ski primarily in the Northeast at places like Stratton, Hunter, Bromley, Kilington, Gore, etc. I dont really have a home mountain...just go to different places for changes of scenery.
I'm comfortable on blacks and can go down double blacks with control as well. i stay mainly on groomers and like to go reasonably fast. when i was at stratton i rented a pair of Volkl skis with wider tips, not sure of the measurements, and liked them. I was still able to go fast but felt the wider tips helped me while slowing up and turning on the hardpacked snow. I would be interested in getting something similar.
Money isn't to big an issue....jsut let me know what you guys think. I appreciate any help as i enjoy sking but don't really kniw much about the technical/equipment aspect of it.
