ON3P Ski Choice and Sizing
I’m looking for a new pair of skis for next season... I’m 16, 6’2” and around 230 lbs. the last couple seasons I have been skiing a pair of kartel 108s around 181cm long that I got from my dad. I consider myself to be a fairly advanced and playful skier although I’m not super into park. I ski around 40 days a year in the PNW and travel regularly. This year I am considering getting a pair of Jeffery 108s or woodsman 108s in either a 186 or 190cm length. What would you guys recommend for a skier like me. I already have a touring setup so I’m mainly concerned about in resort skiing so what would you guys recommend for ski and size choices for me this next season?
Also I fairly new here so some tips for posting would be appreciated!
The woodsman 108 would be a great choice for you I think. I skied a pair at a demo day and had tons of fun on them. If you're looking outside the ON3P realm then you could check out the Faction Candide or Prodigy 3.0. Icelantic makes a super fun stiffer park ski called the nomad(comes in a 98 as well as a 105) that seems like it could be right for you. K2 also makes the Marksman(106) which is essentially a fat park ski that rips all mountain and does pretty well in powder too.
Consider Moment Wildcat 108 or the 4FRNT Devestator

I'd get a ski thats 190 or longer
Jeffrey 108 if you want something with more freestyle DNA, full twin, more playful, rounder flex.
Woodsman 108 if you want something more driven, stable, and capable all mountain, but are not concerned landing switch and are comfortable with a ski that takes more effort, particularly at slow speeds.
Longest size of each IMO.
All times are Eastern (-4)
