I have had quite a few since I started skiing, but I ski rossignol and salomon right now. This season I plan on buying new again and the rossi 9S is top of my list so far. Have to test them first. Nordica and Elan are making great skis this season too.

Zlathim- Here is a link to KUU's website and tuning information. I find that this info is pretty good and not to hard to do.

I got a pair of Rossignol skis with Salomon bindings and Salomon boots for only $20 at a flea market. I can't wait to try them out

The best thing about owning is that you don't have to wait in line at the resort or goto your local ski shop to get or return skis.

At first I got advice from my local ski-shop. They'll usually give you an honest recommendation based on what kind of skiing you do. I honestly prefer straight skis that are slightly larger for my height. Longer skis won't chatter as much at higher speeds.

Once you know what to look for, another great source is a local ski-swap/sale. I got a pair for $1000 skis for a little over a hundred bucks. They were used only a few times and performed great. The savings are incredible at some of these events.

I remember once when I got a brand new pair of skis, on my first day using them I barely crossed my tips and there was a huge scratch on the top.

Check your local ski shop for ski swap dates.

Hi

I have just joined a training course in professional skiing where amateurs are taught and trained in the nitty-gritties of the sport! If anyone could suggest a place from where I can buy a pair of the best skis then that would be great! Money is not a constraint but at the same time, kindly suggest something that is not monstrously expensive!

I like to have my own Stuff !!!

( But it is more important to have your own boots ( read [B]BOOTS[B]).
That is where people seem to really come unstuck.
However skis I have owed in recent times are; Rossi Axium (easy learning ski & very forgiving)
Dynastars Contact 10, 165 cm a great ski, tracks well on ice / hard pack not so hot in deep powder, but great 90 % time - I love em !
My latest addition a pair of K2 Extremes, Why ? cause I wanted a pair of twin tips, & something that will handle Nth-American powder + perform well here at home in Oz. whilst being twin tips they are more of an all rounder - than a terrian park shooter.
And they look great too !
{ picked them up in Vancouver , just before I came home - saved a bundle }
