I would like to replace my JAVINEN (the BEST combo skis) with a complete package (ski, bindings, boots and poles). I am a recreational skier and need a ski that will perform well on both groomed and non-groomed trails. I would like the proper ski for my size and weight and will be willing to wait until the ski is in stock. I am 60 plus, 120 lbs and 5'7" What would you advise with high ratings? Thank you kindly!

We're hoping that you're planning on hanging on to your Jarvinen skis as they would probably look awesome displayed somewhere! We'd love to see a photo of them here in the community if you're willing to share.
We will include a couple of options for a full ski set up for you, however, we would recommend spending time getting properly fitted at your local REI store or scheduling a virtual outfitting appointment to speak with an expert and make sure you fit is correct for the skiing you would like to do.
We grouped these two as branded packages but you could certainly swap any parts you would like depending on your preferences. In terms of pole length, you want a pole that is shoulder height (or approximately .84 times your height in cm), which, in your case, would be right around 142 cm.
Hopefully this helps, thanks!
