Hi everyone, first post here. I am a very keen skier and I am doing m first winter season this year in Andorra. I'd say I'm a pretty advanced skier. I've been skiing for about 12 years and I can ride any pisted runs and a lot of backcountry, powder and off piste stuff too. I'm looking to buy my first skis and boots soon, but I'm lost as to what are good quality boots and skis. I will have a budget of about $1,000 which I hope should be plenty. I'm looking for some good all round skis, but I have a preference to free ride and I'm also looking to get in to park riding, so some twin tips may be an option.
Boots wise, I'm lost. I'm just looking for any good boot that will fit my style. (Off piste, free riding) I like the look of Salomon boots and skis, but are they the best brand? No idea...
I'm also looking for some really good gloves and goggles too. No preference on brand. Although I've used Oakley in the past and thought they were decent. I'd like some polarised goggles, so I can use them in all conditions.
Any help at all would be awesome! Thanks guys.
