I`m thinking of getting 2012 Rossignol S3 skis, they have apparently been used once and are on sale w/bindings non-centered (good) for 400$. I currently have 2011 Line Sir Francis Bacon 183cm (115mm). I find them not that fun in the East but out west they are unbelievable. The Rossignol`s for me will be for skiing in the east with their smaller waist at 98mm and for my dad when we go out west. Right now he is skiing on Volkls from 2006 that are way to small for him in length and width, all in all he is sinking in the powder out West. Also Park does not apply for these skis.
My questions for the Rossignol are:
Are they too long at 186cm for me (6'1, 160lb) (high advanced)?
Are they going to be better for the east (WHITEFACE, Quebec, Vermont)? Still be good out West (Anywhere, this Year BC and Utah)?
Is 400$ a good deal? I think it`s amazing but what do i know...
P.s Whiteface is highlighted for my home area, it`s not that ICY!!! But do not center these skis around skiing that specific mountain.
