Hello all, currently I have only been skiing for 4 days and have acquired a set of volk RTM 7.4 skis in 142. From everything I read this seems way too short for me at 5'5 and 180lbs. I got them on my second day as we were looking to have to modify them for adaptive equipment as I have CP and the rental department at my local resort wasnt being cooperative, so it was buy something or stop skiing. As it turns out we didnt end up modifying them and just by having private lessons I was able to get my issue mostly under control.
Now since my last lesson I went from being able to barely manage anything more than a bunny hill to easily ripping down our blues and even I have been attempting the black but seem to have noticed a few things along the way. Mostly that my skis once on edge love to quickly make a 90D turn almost like a skid turn this I love as I can carve around anything as when riding with my friend on green trails there is a lot of people to avoid, sometimes it feels like you are running double gates but with bigger losses if you hit one. Now this means I have to hold back on speed as once above 25mph the skis seem less responsive to input and get a mind of their own which means a lot of turns when I run down the black.
Now I am wondering if my controls is just from only having 8 hours of lessons and 4 days under me or is it the ski itself?
