New XC skier-- what eqip to get?
Hi, I had my first xc ski experience and loved it. I want to buy equipment so I can go more often. I am going to Mammoth this weekend and rather than renting would like to just get skis. What advice can you give? I am female... 5'4" and 115 lbs. Of course, I am a beginner, want to get a traditional set and mostly plan on going on trails or back country. I am not concerned with speed/racing or anything...just going for fun and exercise.
What size/specs on skis would you recommend?
