Have a friend that wants to get into skiing (switch from snowboarding). The problem? The man is 6'8", 220 pounds, 28 years old: a beast.
He currently boards all-mountain (especially trees, groomers, and light powder), so that would be the sort of ski hes looking for. Rides in the Sierras on a 163 board.
So what are some skis that come in/are good for his size? Both more beginner oriented and advanced oriented suggestions for if/when he gets into it and improves.
From what I notice, most skis sizes start capping out in the 190s: is he stuck with custom/special skis?
Demoing and renting a variety of skis is possible FYI
Thanks in advanced guys!
