i’m looking to buy a pair of skis.
i’ve skiied under 10 times, but i enjoy it a lot. i’m probably going to take lessons the next time i go skiing, and i’m looking for friends to go skiing in the alps or in australia come summer. then next winter i’ll probably get a season pass.
so i presume that with the amount of skiing i’ll be doing, i should improve faster, so i don’t want to buy skis that i’ll outgrow in a season. yet i don’t want advanced skis when my techniques are not fully mastered.
i’m 5′6″ at 140lbs, and i was thinking of the Rossignol Bandit B1 at 154cm, what do you think? also, what should i look out for in boots? i figure i shouldn't buy them online since i should try them on first to see if they'd fit nicely.
i’m fairly comfortable/confident on blue slopes, except when there’s crud on it. that’s when i’ll fall, so that's what i want to master now.
any advice would be greatly appreciated!
