Hey Epic Skiers,
While shopping for new skis, this site kept popping up, so I figured I should get some advice from you guys.
I started skiing a few years ago, but really got into skiing this past season. I've been using so-so rentals from my university's ski club, so I think it's time that I upgraded.
6 feet tall, 165-170 pounds. Have been skiing 170s which seem like a good length for me.
I'm comfortable skiing blacks on easy mountains (Stratton, Jiminy) and can get down moguls and glades if I take my time. I'm from the Northeast US so conditions are usually icy. I'm really looking forward to skiing a lot this coming season and getting better as I do.
I tried looking around on a few sites, but wasn't really sure what I should be looking for in a ski. Any advice on what I should look for in a ski or any specific reccomendations on skis? I'm looking to spend less than $600.
