advice on buying skis

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey there,

This is my first post. I have recently come back to skiing from a seven year layoff. I am a level 9/10 skier (racing and freestyle background). I'm still good and very aggressive. I don't know 'squat' about the new skis and have noe idea what to buy. I now have a pair of Dynastar sc 10's, 160cm. I always skied on Rossi, Dynastar, Dynamic skis about 195-205 length. I tended toward slalom skis for bumps, but I love high speed cruisers as well.

I'm 5'7, 150lbs and fit. Help me, I'm lost!

thanks,

cannelli

Much also depends on where you ski.

And no wise adz answers like "on the white stuff" ... that's my department!

You don't say where you will ski and for what kind of terrain. I am almost exactly your height and weight and ski mostly in Vermont with a couple weeks out west each winter. I also grew up on slalom race skis. I now have two pairs: Fisher RX8 for most days in the east and a Dynastar Legend 8000 when there's fresh snow in the east or for taking out west. Both are 165 cm length. They both have the lively feel I prefer and are versatile and forgiving.

I ski in norhtern Vermont. Mad River Glen, Jay Peak, Stowe. translation: steep icy bumps one day, packed powder the next, followed closely behind by 'frozen granular'.

I suggest you try Head Supershape Speed, Atomic SX12 PB, and Fischer WC.
