I'm not a newb, but it's time for me to buy my own skiis.
I've been skiing my whole life, about 5 times per year, but my parents have always bought my skis. I'm 19 and I've had the same skis for years, so I'm getting my own.
My current skis are old rental skis from Aspen. They're about 4 year old rossignol cuts. The bottoms are totally rusty and scratched, partly because I never waxed them. There isn't much of an edge. I bought brand new boots this year, dalbello aspires.
I live in New England (but I actually hope to end up in San Francisco after graduation... they have skiing there right?) and I am an intermediate downhill skier who really wants to get better. I've been going at least every Saturday this year. I'm 5'10 and 260 pounds. I'm also a woman though I doubt that makes a difference.
So... what skis should I look into? I'm going to the demo center at Stowe soon.
