Hi all, I have not been on skis since 2006 having spent the last 10 on a board. Now looking at doing a bit of skiing with a school group I'm taking to Austria. Thing is I have no idea about todays tech. I used to have a pair of Fischer RC4 supercarves at 183cms back in 2006 but I appreciate time moves on. To be honest I'm not looking to spend a fortune, just need something for on piste cruising but with the option to enjoy a stable ride at some decent speeds. Back in the day I was comfortable carving black runs and enjoyed getting a bit of speed up. They will be for mostly on piste with I know it looks like one of those " what skis should I buy" threads but I would really appreciate some thoughts on this. I'm 6f1 and about 16 stone... Any advice very gratefully received, thanks in advance.
PS I have a pair of Nordica boots from 2003 that were heat moulded at the time, tried them on for a little trundle at the dry slope, still feel comfortable. I'm thinking that boot technology has moved on a long way as well. Are new ones necessary or will I get away with a comfy classic?
