This will be my first post here.
Basically, I skied a fair bit in the 80s, but moved and lost access to a boat and have only skied occasionally since. All my gear is 80s vintage.
Just bought a boat (also 80s vintage, a MC S&S just like the ones I drooled over in my 20s), and I’m thinking maybe go to a newfangled ski. Back in the day, I skied a 63” EP Comp X2; I’m only 5’4” and weighed 123lb back then. I’m still the same height, but weigh in around 165 these days; I was recently given another Comp X2, this one 67” (I think) and I do find it much easer to ski on.
So anyway, what’s out there these days? Have skis changed much, or is it only the bindings? For an older guy of my height/weight, what length ski should I be looking at? I used to ski 28’ off (I think) at around 33 mph, but I expect I’ll be slowing down somewhat these days.
