hes got tons of experience on then i believe
The Tahoes didn't cut it eh? Well although the Nightrain is a legendary backcountry ski, but at 168 it would be pointless to add this to your quiver as a powder/tree ski. The Tahoe at 180 probably floats just as well at the short pow ski....why would his length be even interesting to you at all....what is your height, weight, skill level...?
If you are interested in a playfull powder skis with rocker (it makes all the difference I promise you) check out the Bibby, a deeper sidecut than the nightrain great in the trees, Icelandic Shaman great tree ski, and the Billy Goat by On3p with pintail design for surfing in the trees.
