K2 are good skis man, the silencer has all mountain rocker so will be good in crud and ok in a small amount of pow, its a good, light, cheap ski to start with, i would recomend salomon sth or marker bindings, K2 come up a bit bigger than most so a 169 is more like a 171 but cause your ski is rockered you will want to go a bit bigger than normal to get the benfit of it (+ rocker skis have a shorter contact point). I would also recomend full tilt boots i had a lot of problems with shin bang, full tilts sorted it over night, & they are so light
hope that helps
