I need some help with a new (or in good used condition from 2012) ski choice. The basics: 189 lbs, 63 years old, eastern skier, mostly frontside groomers but want to make a foray into powder (6" or so; not too deep), skill level 7, not too aggressive, ski about 10 days a year, 5' 9".
I'm looking at Rossignol Experience 83 or 88 (which one and what length?); Kastle MX 83 or 88 (which one and what length?); the Elan Amphibio WF xti 83 (length?); or just staying with my Blizzard Magnum IQ 76 (168 cm). I have a feeling that with a little wider ski underfoot, say in the mid 80s, I will have an easier time in crud and light powder and other variable conditions, no?
So the question... which one, if any, and how long?
