Hey, I'm nineteen and I've been away from skiing for a few years now. I'm pretty sure I'm between a level four and five skiier- I'm pretty much done with the wedge, but I'm still not entirely comfortable with complete parallel skiing. Anyway, my family lives pretty close to a big resort, and my parents decided we should get season passes this year. Since I'm basically done growing now, they've going to get me my own boots, skis, and poles, and are giving me a lot of freedom when it comes to picking my equipment out.
Okay, now on to what I want to accomplish. In the next few years, I want to get to a point where I can ski any course on the mountain, as well as begin to feel comfortable (humbly!) riding around the terrain park. I'm 6'2'', athletic, and 225 lbs. What general guidelines would you suggest for me to get to where I want to go? Also, any advice on gear would be appreciated, but I'm not sure if this is the proper place to ask about that. Thanks for your input!
