I am a beginning/intermediate skiier looking for a ski that will help me to progress, yet at the same time not be one that I will have to upgrade anytime soon.
This is my first season skiing, and I hope to have many to come. I am a farily athletic individual, and I think this has helped me to progress a little quicker than others. As it stands, I can ski the blues just fine. For maybe the first few times out, I was doing the whole snowplow turn thing. But the last couple of times I started to get the hang of turning on the outside ski and bringing the inside ski in parallel. Not sure that I am actually carving yet, not sure how to tell.
I have been skiing on borrowed equipment and need something of my own to use. After some research, I decided Volkl AC2s would be good for the varied conditions here in Utah. At this point I am more comfortable on the groomed runs, but I would like to learn to ski off piste as well. I am under the impression these skis are good for both applications.
I am now just wondering what size I should get, and actually whether they are the best choice for me at all.
Here's my info again:
Ski mostly Salt Lake Resorts (Brighton, Canyons)
