I live in the west and ski at Brundage mountain, which has a reputation for it's powder and it's lack of decent terrain park and yet I've spent the last 3 years skiing on a beat pair of chronics. So I've decided to upgrade to something a bit "wider". I've got my eyes on either the candide 2.0 or 3.0, but I'm not sure which would fit my riding better.I want a ski that can handle high speed carving, big jumps and float well in powder, but that is still light and playful enough to jib around, butter, frontflip off of rollers underflip off little boosters and so on.Thing is I'm a small guy, 5'7" 130 lbs and skinny as fuck, and so I'm not sure whether the 3.0 might be too big for what I want, but at the same time the extra floatation would be sweet. Any thoughts would be great, and if not then thanks anyways and enjoy this:

I've been riding 3.0s almost everyday this season here on the east coast. I'm about 5'5, so almost your size. they are super light, supposedly they weigh about the same as soma's which are a 92 underfoot all mountain ski, so you won't have any issues with spinning them or being overwhelmed by their weight. and the tips and tails are fairly soft, so you shouldn't have any problem jibbing with them either.
