I'm 5'10" and 165lbs. I'm an expert skier and like everything from steeps to bumps and based out of Crested Butte CO. I have a pair of 2009 179 Obsetheds and love them, but I want something a little more situated for powder. I like playful, poppy skis that can turn fast, smear, and spin, but I also want something that won't suffer on steeps when the conditions are variable, and will land cliffs. I've been looking and the On3p Billy Goats, the JJ's, and the Surface New Lifes. Any suggestions on these skis or others I haven't looked at?
chetlers are fine on steeps, go watch sage and durtschi rock steeps on them.... if your going to put on some weight then pickup the 192 but at 165 the 183 would be nice. But your correct the SFBs would be too noodly for butte
