I was opting for skis at 116-120 however I realise now that I don't get much backcountry skiing down where I am and its more just straying far off piste in resorts looking for pow such as in Val D'isere, Verbier and Portes de Soleil. So my question is if it just more reasonable to go for a ski in the 112-116 area so I don't sacrifice much on piste performance?
I was first thinking about Pettitor, Bent Chetler, Bibby Pro. But I am now thinking about the ON3P Jeffreys or Billy Goats (If I can find them here in Switz), Armada Norwalk (people dont like Armada skis so much here I've realised but surely the Norwalks are a great all mountain pow ski?) and I absolutely love the look of the Moment Deathwishes, they look like great skis with the mini cambers with such a sick graphic. On that note, I've handled my 98s in some pretty deep pow pretty well so surely I will be able to float and ski great on 112s in deep pow right? So ye, don't know if I should bother going for 120s and sacrificing piste performance when I can handle 112s in deep pow just as well + that I ski resort pow most of the time?
Secondly, what height should I be getting? I'm pretty light at 155 for my height (I'm 20) so I'm thinking in the 189+ area is a no go as I won't be able to ski as nicely on them as if I were to get 185s, etc. So are 189/190 skis still good? Or should I just get 185s/186s? And what is considered too short? I'm thinking anything below 184 right?
TL;DR : Want pow skis, thinking of 112-116s instead of 120s since I don't want to lose that much on piste performance and I only ski resort pow (not extreme backcountry). Also what height, is 190 too high and 184 too short for me?
Thank you for your help, sorry for the long post but I do mad research before I purchase anything and I highly enjoy skiing.
