I am a 28 year old from Kansas City, and I have been skiing since I was five. That being said, my experience has been 3-5 day trips to Colorado over spring break every year, not any significant time on the hill. I have spent quite a bit of time at the local ice rink with a 350 foot vertical. Needless to say, I am good, but not great. That all (somewhat) changes this year. I started my own chimney service company and have booked two week long trips to Colorado, in which I will be doing a quick inspection on the fireplaces of the condos we are staying in, making them business trips. It has taken me 9 years of breathing creosote out of chimneys to finally be able to afford this ridiculously expensive hobby, glad glancing at fireplace makes the trips a tax write off. Also, the National Chimney Convention is in Portland, so I am making a ten day trip out of that and hitting Mt. Hood. I am 5í10Ē and 165 pounds. Not knowing much I bought 168cm Armada Al Dentes four years ago not realizing that was too short. This year I picked up the ARV 106ís at 180cm. I am a big fan of trees and bumps, but I am worried I went a bit short this time around as well. Anybody have this model/length? Do you like them? Traded some chimney repairs with a local shop owner for Marker Jester bindings and Solomon XPro 100 boots. Any complaints on that gear? I am beyond stoked for 14+ days this year, hoping for a good powder day to try out these skis.
