I am a British skier intermediate level 6/7 and thinking of buying a pair of Fischer AMC 76 Skis 164 cm's.
I am Male 44 yrs, 5'11" and 160 lb's, i'm fit and ski in Europe 14/21 days a year. I Ski fairly fast but not a racer, I ski on groomed, ice and crud, No bumps and no off piste yet but off piste sooooon i hope.
I was advised to buy the Fischer AMC 76 Skis in 164 cm's. I am told they are for the more advanced skier but they would help me improve and allow me to ski all of the mountain.
I normally ski on piste but i want to go skiing in USA or Canada next season so i'm looking to ski in some powder with lessons when there and this year if i get the chance in Europe. The idea is that if i buy the AMC 76's skis now and use them in Italy and France this season, get used to them, improve and go off piste a little before going to USA or Canada next year for more off piste action.
I have seen some at 164 cm's for sale and very cheap i think and only used for for 6 days last year, so they sound like a bargin arround US$170/200 or £100/120.
Q. Are the slightly used 164 cm's ok for my hight/weight and ability or should i go longer to 170 cm's and buy new?
Q. Will i be ok on the Fischer AMC 76 Skis? Or are they too advanced for an experienced intermediate?
Q. I've also see adverts for boots that compliment the Fischer AMC 76 Skis but i have a comfy pair of Lange boots. Will the skis be fine with my Lange boots?
Any advice appreciated.
I dropped acid when skiing and lost my wife, I recommend it !!!
