I think I've got it narrowed down to one of these 2 skis for a 1 ski quiver. Demo'd both and loved both.
I'm 5'8", 160 lbs and advanced. Physically in good shape. Can ski anything short of a double black, but will occassionally dance my way down a double if not too narrow. I ski agressively, but not all out like I did in my 20s (I'm 47 y.o. now). Like to ski all over the mountain, prefer off piste to on, and ski bumps for at least a few runs per day. Live out east, but do all my skiing out west, mostly CO, UT or MT. Love powder, but rarely lucky enough to catch more than 8-12 inches of fresh. Most days find myself off piste in less than 8" fresh stuff and of course, sometimes no new snow.
Can't decide between the FX 84 @ 176cm or the FX 94 @ 166. Would very much appreciate comments regarding which best suits the descriptions above, which would float better on the rare big powder days, which is the best combo of length and width, etc. Would like to buy soon, but want to feel sure as to which one.
Thanks in advance.
