Skied for first time in about 17 years on my old Salomon SX 91 Equipe boots, PRE 198cm( 70-60-80) skis with my 13 year old son.First I went down a groomed blue-all good.So I ripped a black diamond with crud and showed- off a bit( kid did not know I could ski) and a 20 something guy on little Volkls looked at me kinda funny like he did not realize skiing existed in the 70's or 80's.Still smiling two days later- and the kid wants to 'board' with the old man...
Just like riding a bike & old times at Whistler when real ski bums ripped on 220's through whatever was on the slope and the lift had a certain sweet odor at times.
Questions:1. Will my boots explode soon? is the 340-45 on the sole my size?
2. What will happen to my skiing when I go to "new shaped skis" ?
3. 5'11 @ 190lbs....How long, and what side cut, do you think I need?
Back in the day we only had 1 pair of skis...I plan on doing the same-one ski to do it all.
I welcome your recommendations.Thanks.
