uhhh i would definitly have to disagree, if your skiing out west your gonna want a way fatter ski, even for park, i would say something along the line of seths, or some other fat twin of that type so msp and karma would work fine also.
umm you live on the east coast, so you wouldn't really have a clue what skiing up in the northwest is like. Having lived in washington for 18 years, i can say you are going to want a fatter all mountain ski (though deffinitely not over 100 if it's your only ski). i would say that the chronic is not going to cut it in the heavy NW pow, so up the size to either the wide or the blend and you will be much happier. also on the cheaper side the spayer bc in 182 might be good option for you as you are lighter. the other two skis would also be good. If you want a longer ski that would be less park oriented, the 185 ARV would be good too (i have a new pair of 06s, PM meif interested)
both awsome skis, the MSP is better for pow as it is wider, while the karma is better for groomers as it is stiffer and skinnier. for park it's more of personal preference, i'd prefer the MSP as its fatness makes uup the stability that the stiffness that the karmas give you.
