I am right about your size. For eastern front side skiing, my current favorite is an Elan junior gs race ski in 170. It has good flexibility even at my light weight, it has excellent hold on ice and it is lots of fun. Jr. race skis are also a bargain, especially last year's models. I also tried the Atomics Jr. GS also in 170 which are also excellent. It is not an all mountain ski but it is more versatile than you might think. I also have a Dynastar exclusive Legend in a 75 waist that was good - not the hold of a gs but better in ungroomed and bumps. I just got fat skis but haven't tried them yet.post #3 of 411/17/11 at 7:40amThread Starter
