Replying to Buying first pair of skis
Hello, my name is Bob and I ski in the Alps. I am an an intermediate skier, I can do 360s and basic rails, and the occasional 540. I also ski powder but, what I'm looking for is a pair of secondhand skis that is primarily good in park but also suitable for powder and cliffs. I am 19 years old, 5'9 (175 cm), 165 pounds (75 kilos) and my budget is no more than $300 with bindings.
I found a pair of Black Crows Viator (171.3cm) up for sale, that have been skied for one season and are in good condition with a few scratches. The price is $200 dollars but am not sure whether to buy them as haven't seen many reviews online and are branded as all mountain skis which questions whether they would truly be suited for park.
I have also heard that the Armada ARV 86 are good, especially for park. But haven't been able to find any secondhand yet.
Any recommendations or advice will be greatly appreciated
