So I currently ride Atomic Blackeye Ti's (82 under foot) in a 181. I'm 6'3" 215 and I'm looking for something that is more stable at high speeds on steep groomers, yet still wide enough to handle my intermediate powder skiing and I am learning how to ski bowls, namely, "The Wall" at Kirkwood. I took my narrow skis on the wall last year and learned first hand how not so ideal they are. Given the specs that I have researched, I feel like the Vantage 90 are my faves based on what reviewers on skisdotcom have said, even though I have not yet demoed them. They get a very high rating along with the Bramas.
Thing is, I feel like I want to at least go to a 100, but as said, at this point, I spend about 70% on steep groomers. I want something that will help me really learn to ski "The Wall" with confidence that will still handle groomed runs well. I almost tend to think I'd like something wide, yet still quick turning when I want them to be. Also considering the backland 102's as they seem to be playful. But would they be ideal for a heavier taller rider in say a 180?
Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.
