Beginning park skiier (6"1 168lb) trying to decide between 2008 surface watch life 183cm and 2008 High Society Classics 177cm. Either one is going to cost me $200
Mostly looking for something that will make learning jumps easier in the park but still allow me carve groomers (a ski that doesn't sink in the powder would also be nice, which makes me lean towards the watch lifes with their wider waist).
Worried the watch lifes might be a bit long for me. But the lack of reviews on the high society classics is worrisome (I can't even find a site with their exact specs... the 2009s are 119 80 109 so I'm assuming the 2008s are pretty similar).
Thoughts? Should I be considering some different skis entirely?
