As my son has recently developed a serious interest in snowboarding, I've decided it's time for me to get back into skiing in a big way. I've gone a few times here and there - my last big trip was out to Copper Mountain in Colorado a few years ago, and this year I've been to some of the local PA hills a few times already. Getting tired of renting the built for newbs skis, so just ordered this package: http://www.evo.com/outlet/ski-packag...1737/clone.jpg. Reviews seem very good and I couldn't beat the price.
I'm a pretty aggressive adv/intermediate, and the last pair of skis I owned (K2 5500, 190cm) were great at the time. With the new tech and sizing guidelines, I went with 171cm. Now I just have to wait for them, go to the local shop for new boots and to get the bindings mounted. Can't wait to pass by the rental counter next time I head to the mountain!
