My advice is to go to a ski shop or a ski instructor that you trust,
and talk with them about your skiing ability and style.  When you
have suggestions, rent and try a few at a ski area, then pick your
favorite.  I didn't think that different ski models could be so
different in performace until I did that, and now I would never make
a purchace without a demo.

Your first purchase should be a white tank top and a pair of orange
shorts.  Have a picture of yourself taken, and posted on this newsgroup,
then I can fully evaluate your skiing potential.  Trust me on this, I'm a
highly trained professional.

Don't worry about buying the right equipment, rent them until you're
comfortable on the blue runs.  If you purchase too early, your equipment
will be better than you, or if it matches your ability, you will easily
advance beyond it.
