Any line rep / soulmate advice
Wondering wether the soulmate 90 or 98 is the ski to go. The missus rides mainly on piste and mainly in australia so fairly hard packed conditions. Is the 90 the ski or is it worth going up to the 98 just incase that rare powder day actually shows up? Is the lost performance on piste by going up to the 98 worth it or is the 90 more than capable?
Also she is 57kg and 167cm tall would the 165 be the way to go? or more the 158? She is at the level of getting familiar with black and pretty confident with most blues.
A lot of guys on here will say go the 98, but honestly she'll be just fine on the 90 so long as the ratio is no lower than 70:30 on piste to off.
The 165cm will probably be fine for her, with rocker they'll run a little short anyway so don't let the thought of having a ski almost as long as she is tall freak her out too much. Besides the soulmate is a very manageable ski.
Legend J, thanks for the advice. I reckon the 90 is sweet to as my own widest skis are only 92 and they do fine in every condition I rise in. In my near 10 years of skiing in aus and nz ive only had two proper pow days due to skiing being unafordable. Might buy them online tonight, once again thanks for the advice.
