This is my first post and I've lurked for the past couple of months and have searched, but I know everybody's different, so I'm asking for some advice. I intend on going to a boot fitter to get the right boots sometime in the summer (when I have some money.) Anyway, the back story:
Growing up, I played ice-hockey and was and still am a very good skater. I'm in very good shape and am coordinated, with good balance. I started skiing when I was 19 and skied a bunch that year and a little when I was 20. Between then and this year (I'm 24 now,) I hadn't skied because I just couldn't afford it. However, I went back and within the first day was doing blues and easy blacks again. I would consider myself an intermediate skier. I can ski with proper form and balance on crappy rented skis and boots and make parallel turns without using my poles (rest assured I do use poles when I ski, I was just implying that I don't need them for balance.) I haven't done much moguls, but I'm planning on doing more next season. The same with powder. Basically, I'm looking for skis and boots that will ease my improvement and help me ski the entire mountain from the groomers (when I teach my girlfriend how to ski) to powder and bumps (for when I ski with friends next year at A-Basin.) I've done some research and I think All-mountain skis are for me. I've been thinking of Völkl AC 3 Motions or AC 20s. However, I'm open to suggestions and Salomon Mission 6, Mission RS 7, or Fischer Soma MX Fit 80 boots.
My feet aren't narrow nor are they wide, though the widest point is pretty wide. I'm 5'10" and 165 lbs. Let me know what you think.
