Kinda urgent question...
Okay. I've had it. Every time I been snowboarding lately, I felt like I been dragging myself out... I don't look forward to it... so i'm switching back to skiing. Problem is, I haven't skied since 1995... So I don't really know what gear I should get... I'm 6'3", 250 lbs, and last time I skied I was a certified Level III... I'm a technical skier, I don't really hike, so super wide powder skis are out of the question, I have no interest in park/freestlye, so no floppy twin tips either... I like trees, steeps, and high speed cruising. I've done a bit of homework, and I'm looking at maybe Rossignol CX-80's, or Armada Ants... I dunno... Boots, i'll try on a few dozen pairs to see what's right, my snowboard boots are Salomon and they're comfy... prolly go with those. I dunno about bindings either... All I know is, K2, Tyrolia and Nordica are 100% out of the question since that's what I blew my knee on... I'm heading to Banff today and I wanna gear up to make my new year's resolution skiing again... any advice? Money is no object... Thanks in advance!
