Newbie here! I'm an intermediate skier and I'm looking for a decent ski to help bring me on - have recently moved to Colorado and am planning to ski a lot this coming winter. I'm very much still on the piste, not really worrying too much about terrain parks and the like (though I'm not averse to the occasional go if the mood takes me). I'm considering the K2 Mistic Luv which is currently in Sports Authority's sale - does anyone know anything about this ski as I can't find any reviews? I believe that K2 sometimes rename skis for certain shops - if so, has anyone got any idea what the equivalent ski would be?
Also, the guy in the shop said the correct length was when the ski reached just to your eyebrows - is this right? He recommended a 156cm ski for me - I'm about 5'5" to 5'6" in height and about 170 pounds in weight.
This is my first time buying skis so I'm a bit lost. Have to say I was sorely tempted just to buy them but I assume I couldn't take them back once they've been drilled for bindings so have held off. I have decent boots which I've had for a number of years - they're fairly comfy so don't really want to buy new boots if it can be avoided.
Thanks in advance!
