Yes, going out west is a consideration.
Any good Volkl dealers in Ontario?
Here's my thought process for these skis. Keep in mind I'm norrowing these down based on just a couple hours research, so if I say anything that doesn't make sense let me know.
185 Volkl Wall - look good, maybe geared too much towards park. Too short? $500
185 Volkl Bridge - probably would suit me well, could be too short. $600
187 4FRNT MSP - these look great, better length. $600
K2 Seths - These sound too soft.
181 Head Mojos - Biggest are 181, too small.
196 Moment M1 - 196 holy cow!! Great looking skis. I really like these. Their site says its preorder only, and the US price is 625, the Canadian price is 796. That's BS, our dollar is worth 1.09 US right now.
185 Armada El Ray - Good price, too short. $400
179 Line Blends - too short.
179 K2 PE - too short.
189 06/07 Karma - these sound good, having a hard time finding them though. How come last years model are preffered?
last years Karmas are prefered because they stoped making them this year. Also the line blends come in a 186 wich would probably be a good ski for you.
Having a hard time finding a vendor for th Gladiators..
