Let me introduce myself. Long time reader, first post.
From Australia, not exactly the greatest snow fields. So we have a short season.
I used to ski as a child, recently started again and love it.
Started a 1-3 weekly trips per year to snow 3 yrs ago. To Aus fields or NZ.
I'm 6ft1 and 200lbs. Lower intermediate. Easily ski any green runs. Cautiously tackle some blue runs. Mostly skiing 170cm rental salomons. Our snow is pretty hard mostly, gets a bit cruddy late in the day as its warm here.
Looking for my first pair of skis to own. It is difficult for me to demo due to distance, short time at snow and very costly to demo skis.
Found there is too much info online. Many reviewers seem to have brand preference as they stock certain brands or have close relationships with some brands.
Much prefer to poll the general opinions. Will be investing in a few 1 on 1 lessons this year to get confident on blue runs.
Seem to have narrowed it down to 2 skis that will help me progress and be able to use for couple years.
- dynastar powertrack 79 in 180
- Rossi experience 77 in 176
Leaning towards dynastar
I am open to other suggestions, but cautious to over complicate this.
