Actually... two parts to this.
I was torn between what skis to get. Karmas or Bridges. I know they're essentially the same but... I bought the 177cm Bridges for $600. I could have gotten 185 Karmas for $330. Did I make a wise choice spending the extra cash on the 177's? I'm 175 pounds 6'0.
Living in SoCal... you don't get very good help in ski departments...
But since I did go with the Bridges, what bindings should I get? Try to keep the price range around $250. I'll be using the ski literally for everything... especially carving at high speeds.
