I just got a new pair of Blizzard Bushwacker's for 2012-13 season. I am excited to try them, I've heard and read good things. They are 180cm. I need to get bidings for them, I've been told that Marker Griffons are a good choice but I'm not a park guy, no tricks or air anymore. I'll list some stats;
41 years old
Expert skier, PSIA instructor for 9 years
6 feet tall 210 lbs (weight lifter not fat)
I like to carve various size turns mostly, I can still do a couple hours of bumps here and there which I love but my surgically rebuilt right knee doesn't love so much.
I do have a season pass and ski about 20-35 days (5 hours is 1 day)
I'm not too much into gear so not an expert, my concern is stand height and best bindings for my skiing preference. I currently have a couple pairs of Rossi, the Z9's being my go to ski, they are 176 and I love them but they are 2007's so I wanted to give some of the newer rockered tech a go. I've seen some Look (din 12 not sure of the rest) for a good price, I don't need anything so heavy duty like Marker Jester. ANY HELP MUCH APPRECIATED!
