gaper_assasinIm 16 and almost finished growing i think...... i'm about 6 ft 2, i need to start looking for new gear for the ski season ( Niseko this summer ). As i have almost finished growing, i am hopefully no longer in need of new skis and boots every season. I just want some advice on buying gear thats going to last me for longer than a season, what to look for and where to buy it?
thanks, your assumption is correct, i can only dream of skiing internationally on my own!
However, this season i am going to be purchasing my own ski gear as a condition of the trip. In the past i have skied japan on park skis..... I know, who in their right mind would ski deep powder on thin skis? but iv'e grown up skiing in Niseko and have never really struggled with powder skiing until last season (one Armada El Reys) when it was deep i could only sit backseat and bee line through the pow hoping i don't run into trees.
If i was going to be purchasing skis, i would be looking for something at least 100 mm and at most around 115 underfoot and still capable of skiing park and charging groomers.
Any ski suggestions???
