I am 17 years old, 6' 0-1" feet tall, and weigh 172 lbs. I ski on the west coast in areas such as MT. HOOD and MT. BACHELOR. Skillwise I am between a ADVANCED TYPE II and a TYPE III Skier. I'm Looking for a ski that I can hit RAILS, BOXES, and JUMPS with but also I can ski ALL-MOUNTAIN with if I get bored in the park. I am an ADVANCED skier when it comes to skiing the mountain but more of a Novice in the Parks.
Last year I bought a pair of 4Frnt MSP 181 ski's and the dealer through in a pair of Marker M10.0 Comp EPS Bindings for 75$ so I bought them because I was short on money at the time. I beat up the ski's somewhat while learning to hit rails and Boxes last year but they still have another year left in them probably. I was looking at getting a new pair of ski's for this season because, while the 4Frnt were a decent ski they were pretty stiff and I want something a little better suited for the park.
Should I get a new pair of Ski's first or go with a new pair of Bindings? (I will be replacing both in the future)
I'm looking at the Line Chronics and the Armada AR7's but I'm unsure about what bindings to get with them.
