as far as dimensions go... i can't stand a skinny ski. i'd say 83-84 underfoot would be the narrowest i would built a ski. there's just so much more stability at a certain point. just my 2 cents. the 85-95 mm range would be where i would first press a ski.
In the 5th grade i asked a girl out and then ran away as fast as i could, it was awesome.
