Hello everyone and thanks in advance for the help. I am an 18 year old male about 5'9-10" and weigh about 140 lbs. I am high school senior and have recently been accepted to the Air Force Academy where I plan to join the ski club and will ski a couple days a month. I really enjoy skiing but unfortunately have only been able to ski 4-6 days a year. I visit Breckenridge once year where I spend most of my time skiing the upper mountain bowls. I like to ski with some speed and wouldn't quite classify myself as an aggressive skier(if that makes sense). I like skiing moderate steeps although I have skied pitches of around 45 degrees(not long though). I typically ski with speed until the pitch gets around 40 degrees. This past year I really tried to work on carving turns but didn't quite get it down in the steeper terrain. I haven't really skied much bumps but would like to try it more when I get the time. As the title suggests I am looking to buy my first set skis and would really appreciate any recommendations you guys can make. If you need any more information just let me know.
