I have been reading posts on this site for a few weeks and have found the information here to be of great value. But the more I read the more questions I have regarding my decision for new skis. There are so many skis out there that it becomes confusing as to what would be the proper ski for me. I’m have just returned this season and started skiing again after 10 year leave from the sport and remembered how much fun it is so I decided to get back into it and I’m looking for new skis. I’m 49, 5’11, 185lbs and in good shape. I mainly stick to groomed runs and can do any run (without moguls), my technique is not that great but I manage to get down the hill and I want to learn how to ski more aggressively. I don’t do moguls, I would like to but I’m not good enough to do that yet. I would put myself as a 7 to 8 on the scale and I’m planning to take some advanced lessons next season so I can improve my skills. I ski mainly in the Tahoe area. I need a ski that is geared for an intermediate/advanced that will mainly be used on groomed runs. Some day I would like to venture out of the groomers but for now I just want to improve my technique on groomers. Any information you can pass along would be greatly appreciated.
