Hey all you guys, I have a couple questions. I haven't skied since I was young (I'm 22 now). Since recently getting laid off my job in September, I'm thinking about skiing all winter since I live next to a ski hill and don't have to work as I have enough money saved up.
1. What is an easy ski to ride? Or does it matter? I want a ski that will help me get good/decent as quickly as possible.
2. I want a ski that can ski both powder and groomers.
3. What's the proper size of ski I should ride? I'm 5'11'' and about 180 lbs. I read somewhere that since I am a beginner I would need < 180 cm ski. I don't know if I should have on the closer to 170 cm side or closer to 180 cm side.
4. How do I get more steez?
Basically, I'm a ski noob and asking for help. The internet is not the best place to do it, but thanks.
