Switching to skiing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello I am new to the forum, and am looking for my first pair of skis. I am a former skiboarder, I skiboarded for 3 years.I tried ski's last weekend and deffinately want to make the switch. Im sure you have seen countless threads about a first pair of skis, but I need some help. I want twin tips and have dicided upon the older teneighty's, not the new foil's or guns. I am looking at 151cm, because Im 5foot 6 inches and 110-115lbs, and prefer shorter skis. I like to ski park, groomers, and POWDER, especialy glades. Would the 1080s be a good choice for me?:

You sound like you want to ski some all mountain along with park, the 1080 isnt the greatest ski at all mountain skiing seeing as how it is a very soft ski. Um if i were you i would demo a few different skis, i would put the K2 Fujatives on the list, and the 1080's rossi Scratch's, all of those are good park skis, and are ok at the rest of the mountain. FOr a better all mountain ski try out the K2 Publice enemy, and the Line Chronic.

Try to do a search on this, this topic has been disscussed alot.

I can save you the time of doing the search; the search will turn up a winner in the K2 Public Enemy. I haven't skied it, but that's what I've seen reccommended most often.
