Hello all,

 I have been reading posts on this site for a little while and just decided to join because I have some questions myself. So I am thinking it is about time I get some Skis of my own. I have been renting ever since I started back when I was 9 years old, I am now 18.

 

 I am 6'1'', 155-160lbs and in good shape. I like to ski many types of snow, powder, groomers, some park, trees, and I am open to pretty much anything else. last year I headed to Breckenridge and rented a pair of Armada Ar6's and liked them more then the regular renters. But when I took them to the bigger moguls, chop, powder and tree runs I felt that the just didn't have good float and didn't catch the turn well. 

 

 I am looking at twin tips, I love skiing switch. I have looked at Line, Armada, Volkl, K2, and Icelantic. I can't make a decision on a specific ski that would suit me best (probably some sort of all-mountain/freestyle twin tip). 

 

 Recommendations for skis including height would be greatly appreciated! Or any input you have. I am not very aware of places to buy skis, type of bindings and boots either so any help there would be awesome.

 

 Budget for just the skis are anywhere from 300-600, or maybe more....am pretty flexible...Not sure on the prices of other components. Thanks again for all help! Sorry for all the noob questions, this is my first experience with purchasing gear and I don't want to make any mistakes!!
