Need some help,please


i am new to the forum and hoping to get some help with getting new gear.
I am 48,155lb and 5"5".I learned to ski when i was 40.I haven't done much skiing in the past 8 years - maybe 8-10 times each season.We live near Sierra Summit in CA .Now my kids are bigger and LOVE to ski and snowboard,My husband is an amazing Skier and good Snowboarder.It looks like we are going to go way more and also travel to places like Tahoe and Veil and maybe Chili.
Right now i own a pair of K2 Sweet Luv (160cm),which my husband bought for me in 1999.
I do blue runs,but don't gain much speed and feel a little unstable sometimes.My boots are Rossignols Soft Lite.
I'd like to buy new skis and new boots and hopefully improve with skiing more.
Any suggestions,please?
thank you all in advance,

you can try these types of boots
Atomic B-Tech

Atomic then offers their B-Tech models ((buy direct)) at 104mm width. The B-Tech 110 is a good skiing, wide fitting boot. The B 90 and B 90W will be good wide boots and the B 80 and B 80W are big and wide but still soft flexing down to a B 50 and B 50W for the intermediate or beginner.

Lange Ski Boots

Fischer has made headway in the ski boot world. The company makes all of its boots with their Soma-Tec stance - basically working with the anatomical opinion of people being duck-footed and possibly helping us ski more comfortably. The number following the Fischer model name refers to the flex resistance when bending the ankle, on average 150-120 is stiff, 110-90 is average and 80-50 is soft.

these was just two of my favorite ski boots.. oh by the way if you are planning to go on lake tahoe, you may be interested with skiing on Alpine Meadows. Get a midweek + sunday adult pass for just $299 or get the slightly filtered Alpine and Homewood seven day pass for $429. There are other steeply discounted options too so find the pass that fits. If you don’t want to pay now, no worries, financing is available. Lock in the savings now and pay later. Check out all the passes here. Hurry, these deals are only valid unit May 31st!
