Rossignol BC X-2
My friend skis these and she loves them. She paired them up with BC Auto bindings and Rossignol EVO Glade AR skis and does quite well with them in all conditions. I think if you're starting out and these fit you well you cannot go wrong.
Another good one would be the next step up, the BC X-5.
