Topic - Advice on buying skiis

ford23 - on 17 Jan 2013
Hi,
I have been given a budget of around 300 pounds for some skis for my birthday in Feb. To date, I have spent a lot of time on pistes and have recently started with a few days touring, which I would like to continue doing more in the future.
I'd therefore like a pair of skis that I can use both downhill and for touring. Is it better to buy a good quality pair of downhill skis and use adaptors for touring, or to buy a relatively lower quality pair of touring skis from somewhere like Sport Conrad? Could a decent pair of touring skis also suitable for piste skiing be bought for this sort of money? If so, could anyone recommend any particular skis or bindings? My current (downhill and abominable) skis are 168cm - is this a suitable length for touring?
Thanks very much
