This is my first post here - I just stumbled onto this forum when I was searching for good ski communities to get advice about gear purchasing. Hopefully someone here is able to help!
I am an intermediate/advanced skier looking to purchase skis without spending a fortune of money. I've been skiing for many years and had always rented but have finally decided it is time to own my own gear. I just bought a new set of Nordica Hot Rod 85 boots and got the custom insoles made from a good ski shop, so I am all set there.
For skis, I am thinking buying used skis or a model that is a few years out of date will make good skis more affordable. I am looking for recommendations of good all-mountain skis from the 2007-2009 seasons and also potentially for good websites to purchase them. So far the only good site I've seen for buying used or older skis is eBay. Ideally I'd be able to get good skis with bindings for $400 or less - I'd be thrilled to get them for $300.
Thanks in advance for the help - much appreciated!
