So, ill be the first to say it. I dont know shit when it comes to deciding on a pow ski. I know i really want a pair of them for (rare) days i get fresh around my home mountain, but they are more primary going to be used for trips outside of my state (PA) like going out to CO or VT.
So here it goes:
Height: 5 foot 7/8
Skiing ability: Advanced
Skis considering (in order of interest as of now):
183 Atomic Bent Chetlers
175 Armada JJ
I want to have a ski that i can take in to some tight trees, hit a couple bowls with, rip a few groomers and hit some park jumps every now and then when i get bored, and of course, be able to ski them in any sort of fresh snow condition. I dont want it to feel like i have two telephone poles strapped to my feet when im skiing in tight trees, etc...which is my main worry.
I think my main reason for this thread is more helping to get me on the right size of pow ski, because im scarred the 183 bent chetlers may be a little too much for me to handle when i really have to lay down some quick turns.
My other ski is the 171 blue steele (just for reference)
thanks a ton, and karma for answers
