Volkl Bridge/Marker Griffon Questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Alright so two questions...

 

First off, I was trying to decide whether I should get the 171 or 179 cm Volkl Bridge.  I am about 6 ft and 170 lbs.  I ski all mountain but especially love deep powder tree skiing as well as playing in the park.  I want something that can make tight turns and be nimble but also balance well in the deep powder.  Which would you recommend?

 

Also, I am getting the Marker Griffon bindings which come in a 90 or 110 mm brake.  The Bridge is a 95 mm underfoot and I don't know if the 90 mm binding can expand a little bit or if the 110 mm would just be way too wide.

 

Thanks in advance to any and all help.

Okay cool so the 179 should still allow me to play around in the park and make some tight turns?  Also can the brake expand without having to take the binding apart and mess with it?

I do not know what your idea of playing around in the park and or making tighter turns is.

 

this skis is fully rockered it will make tight turns on nearly any type of snow.

+1   The shop can bend the breaks out pretty easy.

The Bridge is a Twintip so it is going to ski shorter by nature plus it is rockered. It will work nicely for you but no ski is going to excel at everything. It is not technically apark ski but won't be awful. You might want to get a Griffon Schizo instead though so you can adjust the binding position on the fly depending on terrain. Just my rethought .02.
