    WTB Skis for beginner friend-

    New thread to avoid clutter of the old one:

    Friend is 5'11, 160.

    Looking for something a bit over 170 with a 90ish waist. Bindings included is plus. So is cheap. Front Range pick up is good too.

    Something like a 173 Blizzard Bushwacker.

    How about an almost new pair of 170cm Blizzard Cheyennes (the women's version of the Bushwacker) with STH2's.

    Want a free pair of old beater 175cm Salomon Pocket Rockets?
    My pair is after they changed its name to "TenEighty Gun", but it's same as Pocket Rocket except graphics.
    175cm, 122-90-115, twintip, foam core.
    It has same graphics pictured at https://www.skimag.com/gear/salomon-1080-gun-2006

    I figure beginners can slide around on a free beater ski, until they figure out what performance characteristics they like in a ski...and then later they can buy a better ski after they progress their skills.

    ISBD I think you need to douche your PM box. (I don't have skis for your friend, but this was your top thread in the forum so easiest to post to).
