So I've been snowboarding for 3 years but recently decided to pick skiing back up. I went and rented some Salomon's at my local hill in Houghton, MI (U.P.) and completely dominated the hill, I had a riot and loved the skis. This summer I'm thinking I'll buy myself a ski package and was looking for recommendations. I'm looking for some freestyle skis, definitely twin tips, would like something flexible, and good for park/jumps. I love to ride all mountain so versatility is a plus. So any recommendations for skis, bindings, and boots (not worried about the poles) would be awesome. I realize the stuff doesn't come cheap but I'm in college so I'll obviousl have a tight budget. Any advice would be awesome, Thanks.

Watch Tramdock for some good deals. One option for a budget-but-still-bomber setup:
Scott Punisher (I think $197 on Tramdock)
Look PX12 Jib ($140 on backcountry.com)
Boots - find a bootfitter. You'll spend most of your money here, but if you're serious about getting back into skiing, it's definitely worth it.
