I am looking for a quality yet affordable pair of skis with bindings. Most likely used. Here is a little about me. I am 5' 9.5",  210 lbs, 34 years old, male. I just started skiing this year in Wisconsin. I have been out about 6 times mostly smaller beginner type hills on rental 160cm. I purchased my own boots which after reading this forum AFTER my purchase, it is clear they are too big. Anyway, I skied a larger hill yesterday (Granite Peak) on 170cm and had quite a difficult time controlling the turn. So, I think I have settled on the 160's. I have been seeing some postings with some good deals but I am either too late or they are too long. I am wondering if anyone out there has a pair of skis that they would like to get rid of at a good price. I am looking to your experience and recommendations for what I should get. I don't want to spend a ton of money as this is my first pair and I am sure I will be upgrading soon. I figure my money would be better spent if I purchased a used pair rather than renting. I The newer the better of course and I would really like a shaped ski. Let me know what you think and thanks for your help.
