Help me decide on a length, NS. Never ridden them before so I’m buying blind, but I’m picking up the new BC this year, although I can’t decide on length.
I’m 5’9”, 170lbs. Depending on the occasion I like to ski hard, fast, and drop cliffs, or slow it down (only a little 😉) and get playful while spinning off anything I can. With the new lightweight model, the 192 sounds like a length that would be optimal for the former riding style, yet allow me to still have fun on the slower days. While the 184 would definitely be more playful, I’m worried about not having the size for the steep, deep, and cliffy. Also trying to keep in mind the two weeks of japanuary coming up.
Any advice? Anyone had a chance to ride either length? Current skis I use often are the 184 sfb, and 186 backland 117 (which I love, but looking for something more playful)
