Okay... here's the deal... after 24 years away from skiing because of knee reconstruction I am getting back into skiing to keep my kids company on the slopes... I got a great deal on some '02/'03 Salomon X-Scream Series (169cm) skis and put some Look P12 Lifter bindings on them (because I heard they were good for skiers with knee problems) and got some Salomon X-Wave 8 boots... I went with the X-Scream Series on the recommendation of a friend (he skis Crossmax 10's)... I was worried they were too much of a ski for me, but he said not to worry, I would grow into them... am I going to be sorry I got these skis... are they too much for someone getting back into skiing after so many years off... or, should I not worry and just go out there and hit the slopes... I guess what I really want to know, is this ski going to beat me up and punish be because I am not up to it's level... any feedback out there appreciated... thanks.
