I'm going to be a first time buyer of skis and I'm really going to need some advice on what to buy. I'm an east coast skier mostly on groomer Poconos mountains, and a few mountains in New York but also looking to take a trip or two to Vermont this year.
I'm 5'6 153lbs, and I can handle most black diamonds pretty well. I just began doing double blacks last year, could mostly handle them just not with a lot of confidence. I don't do moguls. So far I already know that the length range I'm shooting for is 160-163ish, so I have some room to grow into a better skier. I usually get rentals anywhere from 155-160.
I've been all over skis.com and I can't pick out a pair that I think would be right for me, I don't wanna buy something that will be too much ski or too little. Any suggestions?
These are a few of the skis I was debating for myself.
Nordica Jet Fuel Skis
Salomon - X - Wing Storm Z10 bindings
Rossignol Radical R11 140ti bindings
Rossignol Avenger 76 Carbon Axium 120 bindings
Opinions? Suggestions? All advice is welcome.
