Hey, long time since I have been on here, but I'm looking for a new set of skis and not sure what size to get.
I am 5 11' 160 pounds. I ski Whistler and Cypress (smaller local Vancouver mountain), love to ski fast and boost off moguls, over lips and etc. I also like to ski in tighter stuff as well though. Never ski rails and in the past haven't really spun off jumps (like to tell myself I will learn each season but typically have too much fun racing around the mountain and skiing the steep stuff to ever get around to it).
I always find it tough to gauge how good of a skier I am because whenever I start to feel good about myself, I'll see some kids at whistler going twice as big, but overall I consider myself an advanced skier, I can ski all the double blacks up at whistler fairly easily.
Im looking to get the poacher to replace my laughably small 169 kung fujas finally. I also ski have a pair of 183 bent chetlers which dont feel too small. Overall I'm leaning towards the 177s, as I haven't felt the need for my chetlers to be longer, but not sure if I would be better served on the 184's given my height, weight, and ability.
Any thoughts, wouldn't mind a second opinion?
