There have been a lot of threads lately asking for ski suggestions, but a lot of them have given little to no information on the skier that would be using them. So maybe a list of some of the necessary information would be helpful. In short, in order to give a better ski suggestion, we all need much more information/criteria. For example:
Skier Type (I, II, III)
What do you ski? Is this a park/pow/all-mountain/BC/etc. ski?
Where do you ski? What resort? East/West? How much snow/year?
What have you been looking at? Have you done any research?
What skis did/do you have? What do you like/not like about them?
The same criteria in many ways is also applied to boots, but not online. Whenever you have a boot-related question, go to your local shop. There's no excuse. If your shop is closed, wait until it reopens. If there's no shop within 250 miles of you, it doesn't matter, your feet will thank you later. ONLY A PROFESSIONAL BOOTFITTER CAN ANSWER BOOT-RELATED QUESTIONS.
There; that's it. I hope that clears it all up for you.
america, fuck yeah.
