I'm looking to buy some new skis and I'm wondering what would be a good pair to get. I'm about six feet tall and 160 pounds. What length would be good for me? What is a good brand to start out with?

Welcome to Sports SE. The way this question is currently phrased, this is a personal shopping recommendation. Is there anything specific you are looking for when it comes to skis (ie, Looking for beginner skis? Looking for skis built for speed? Looking for skis built to turn well? etc.)? – ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ Feb 25 '14 at 14:28
