Today I bought my daughter a pair of skis for the trip to Snowbird I'll be taking to claim my EpicSki Snowbird Wiki prize. Now I have the fever for myself and need the cure. I'm skiing Rossi XX Bandits I bought demo a bunch of years ago and it's about time to move forward. I try to spend my ski budget on trips, but it's time. I don't want to, or need to spend $800! Won't happen.
Frankly, I've always been a believer that you ski with your legs, not your skis! I'm a back of the mountain skier, skiing the steeps and narrow, powder when available, and I'm always in the moguls, cruising only in transit. A pair of demo or used skis not showing too much use would be fine. Of course, new would be better if I could find them. I'm 5'11" 210lbs. If the skis are lighter than ave that would be good for traveling. Last years model would be perfect or even 09 would look new on me. Any dealer can feel free to pm me. Also, I have a certain look that I want my skis to have. Even though I may not seem to be too particular about what's on my feet, if I don't like the pattern I'll keep looking.
