I'm looking at getting either the rossignol experience 83 or 88. I ski midwest hills about 25 days a year. I have a trip planned for Steamboat in a few weeks. Mostly groomers, but I try going thru trees and crud as much as I can on a 500 ft vertical hill. I consider myself a level 7. I'm 5'7" and 180lbs. I would like some advice on which ski would suit me the best. Rossignol recommends a 176cm in the e83 or a 178 in the e88. I'm not used to that length or width (currently I ski 70mm underfoot on a 154cm). Should I go with the rossi recommendation or could I drop down a size (168 or 170)? I do tend to make frequent sharp turns on the short runs. Will I notice a big difference going to a bigger width? How about the difference from the e83 to the e88? I'd also welcome any thoughts on other skis suited for the midwest. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
