What should I get?

Hey, I went skiing my first time this past winter and had a great time. I want to go back again this winter and am considering buying my own boots and just renting skis and poles. I was there for 4 days and my second day I was on blues and by the 4th was skiing blues very comfortably. What do you think I should buy, I don't want anything that will inhibit me too much because I picked it up so easily my first time. Oh and I'm 20 y.o. 6'4" 255lbs.

Hi,
Your Boots are probably the most important piece of kit.

They need to fit right, be comfortable, all day. all the info from the skis goes back & forth to yer noggan via boots & whats contained within them Your FEET ! and vice-versa
A good ski shop will be able to fit those boots to your feet (molded inners, take the shape of your feet). If you want to save some dosh ($$$) ask for last years/ end-of-season model, The boots are going to fit well just the same. Main thing don't just grab the first pair you see, try a few first. Hope that helps a little
Cheers The Ice-Cutter

Ok guys, will be going to Utah in March. Any recommendations, or should I just go to a ski shop when I get there?
