I am looking to buy my first pair of skis this year. I live near a mountain, but not close enough to have ski shops around. I am looking for skis that are sturdy enough to last a couple of years, but not the best. I am an intermediate skier and a majority of my skiing is on wet snow. I would ideally like to spend $200 or less on skis and bindings (might be too much to ask, I don't know). Where should I look online to buy? Anny suggestions on what ski to buy?
Weight: 200 pounds
Body Type: Athletic Build
Ski Type: Going down hill fast, quick side to side cuts, some air, but not actual jumps
All advice is welcome.
