36 years old; skiing 30 years and generally can handle any run in Ontario or Quebec. Have a pair of 168 cm Fishers from 2000; thin waist.
Had a 66cm of pow day at Whister 2 years ago (roughly Jan 13, 2009) and just sank like a rock. I do about 3-5 days out west every year.
We usually ski trees, bowls and just weird backcountry where we're navigating untrod terrain and hoping there's a lift somewhere. Generally seeking untracked powder, but not for speed, necessarily.
Level 9 seems to have amazing prices; I have four skis picked out and would love feedback. I'm 5'8" and 178 lbs:
Salomon Czar Twin Tip Rocker Powder Skis 166cm
Ninthward Nick Greener Twin Tip Powder Skis 190cm
Ninthward Rory Silva Twin Tip Powder Skis 173cm
Head Supermojo 105 Powder Skis Dark Red/Brown 191cm
The Czar appeals to me for the Rocker; I figure if I'm trying a fatter waist it would help to shorten the active surface.
The Ninthward Rory Silvas are a good price and probably the ideal length.
Appreciate any help.
