Okay, I am not really fat but I am 5' 140 lbs. I'm looking for my first skis and I would appreciate any advice anyone has for me.
I am an intermediate skier and do about 50% on/off-piste but probably more off as I learn my way around a bit better. I'm comfortable skiing on anything groomed in the rental skis but my friends like to ride in the deep stuff and I want to ski with them! I have had a difficult time keeping the rental skis from getting bogged down.
I am not an aggressive or fast skier. I like to chill and have fun but I would like to be able to keep up with my pals.
I have been looking at the Icelantic Scout Sft, the Line Celebritys, the K2 Bad Apples and the Rossignol S7 Youth skis.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? My budget is $400 or less for the skis.
I'm leaning towards the Scout Sft but I'm worried that it won't be enough ski to grow into as I improve and that it might not be fast enough to keep up.
