yeah ive gone a few times, and i want to go more, but if i can find a damn good deal on cl, that would save me quite a bit of money.

i know i need about 160 cm skis, and an 11 mens boot( 5 10, 5 11, 185ish lbs)

ive gone down a few black diamonds and they werent too bad. id put myself as an intermidiate skiier mainly because i played hockey for 6 years and know how to use my edges and distribute weight.


is there anything i need to buy other than...

*water proof jacket( The North Face? if so can you guide me to a model?)
*snow pants(had some, burned them on a snow mobile...roflamo....)
*goggles(had some but fogged)
*ski boots(dunno models, compatibility with bindings etc...)
obvious warm clothing.

i would like to go kinda cheap on some of this stuff. by cheap i mean price not quality, but obviously there is a relationship with price and quality.

im 17, and have a job, and im sorry if there is a snow sports thread, i didnt notice it.

thank you swedish people!!

Yay.

Well, I take it you're talking about cross-country? It's a good idea to wear somewhat light clothing (yet warm, don't take me wrong) because you're going to want to be able to move as freely as possible.
Gear gear.... You forgot proper gloves. Light, technical thermogloves are what you need.
Aside from that, I don't think you need anything else...except a hat of course.

actually down hill, sorry about that.

ive got a few hats from snowmobliling.

do you know of what kind of ski brand, cuts, anything that would be good for a beginner?
i really dont know much about this, i just want to be able to go whenever i want

Ahh downhill...Well the gloves thing still applies
Brands... Head, Nordica and Atomic are my favourites (I use Head currently) and well, for beginners I'd suggest something with a big turning radius (these are usually lighter and easier to maneuver around things with, safer to start with than heavy race skis that just slide down straight like an avalanche...)
