Planning on buying some 2016 Blends but am not sure what size to get. I'm 6' 165lbs and am planning on using these skis for midwest "pow" days and on a trip to colorado this winter. Already own park skis so these would be my all Mtn/Pow sticks. Had My sights set on 178's because that's what my park skis are but wondering if I should get the 185's instead.
I wouldn't get blends for all mtn pow. A 100mm isn't bad but they're super soft, and you're a big guy. I'd get something a little stiffer or go up to the SFB to get some more beef/stiffness under you, still super playful versatile.
