Hi,, some have said I am spending too much on a ski. Would like some thoughts.
I learnt to ski last season and I do blue runs.
Once I got to blues, the rental gears just didn't work for me. I felt I didn't have control, I was going to fast and found hard to turn, just no control and non - responsive.
Went to a place and they advised me some advanced level skis which I really liked. They were quite thin in the mid section with a turn radius of ~10m, 160 is the length of the ski.
I've also tried a intermediate level all mountain ski that was suggested by a shop but I didn't like them.
Should I try more ski's and ones that are cheaper?
If it takes me 2 - 3 seasons to breakeven for the price of the purhase would you rent instead each weekend?
PS. I have my own boots custom fitted. I've also taken private lessons and with a total of 15+ days of skiing I just couldn't handle the cheaper rented skis nor the all rounder skis that I had.
I don't want to buy something that does not work. I could get something cheaper if that works. Clearly not a gear head.
