It's that time of year where you realize you need to ditch your old boards and take the dive into a new pair of skis. The wall-o-skis can be a little overwhelming at your local ski shop. It's best to learn a little about what you're looking for and what's available before you go to the shop. Then you can talk with one of the pros more in-depth to get a perfect fit.
If you're any kind of regular skier, picking out your skis is like entering into a relationship. Choose wisely...otherwise you'll experience pain, frustration, and an expensive divorce when you have to switch to another new pair.
