Nickdillon.43Hey my name is Nick and I ski in the east cost in West Virginia at Canaan Valley Resort, I’m a beginner level skier that can just barley hold my own on the green trails, I’m looking for a set of skis that will perform well as a ski instructor. I’m 21 6 feet tall and weigh in at 260lbs. Most importantly my budget without bindings is no more than 300 dollars. But my biggest question is what length skis should I get?
JamesSmoak12I have a pair of Rossignols that i could give you for a decent price. I live in Elkins, WV and go to the Davis and Thomas area a lot for the mtn biking there.i actually live in elkins too but i picked up a pair of volkls pretty cheap and they did me just fine
mystery3I should have asked how many times does OP plan to ski this year and how much does it cost to rent skis?
I have no idea how much ski rentals cost. I've always skied hand me down gear or used shit off CL.
Granted I live in a fairly large metropolitan area almost exclusively filled with rich people (SF bay area) but I could hop on CL and pick up a decent set of beginner skis tomorrow for $100 easy, boots are a little trickier to find used and reasonably well fitting but $50 and a bit of driving around trying on boots should do it. Used jackets and pants on the forums, ebay.
