Hi all, I would really appreciate if you could give me a hand in this. I've been skiing last 5 years with my Rossignol Zenith Z1s and after some tax refunds it's the time to retire them! I'd say I'd say I'm an advanced intermediate skier. I'm 180 cm tall (5 foot 11 inch) and weigh 85 kg (187 lbs). The Rossignols are actually quite ok, but when skiing fast I find that they chatter quite easily.
I have a chance to buy the last year's Blizzard Magnum 7.6s for a very competitive price and have heard many good things about them. I'm thinking of getting them in 170 cm length but to be honest, just because that's something what I have currently. What do you say? I ski once a year a week or so in the alps and then more in the local slopes that tend to be a bit smaller than that.
