I've been skiing for years. But let me clarify. For the past 16 years (i'm 30 now) I've been going about one time per season. This past season a buddy of mine who really loves to me got me to go 6 times so it's time I get my own gear.
I'm 5'10 and 170lbs and feel comfortable skiing Blue to Single Black diamond. I've rented a whole bunch of crappy skiis over the years and last season I did a performace demo on brand new Solomon X-wings in 168cm and liked them.
I think i feel comfortable with the stopping power and grip at that lengh.
My friend (who I ski with) has Atomic's Izor 9:7 (2007 model) and loves them and reccomends them to me.
ALL THAT SAID I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT SKIS .sorry guys i'm a hockey player
I know there is going to be the annual Princeton Ski shop sale at Giants Stadium (like they do every year) and would like to know what I should be looking for.
Any advice is appreciated.
