185cm JJ vs 195cm AK JJ

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm sure all of you are sick of seeing threads like this, but I would like a little imput before I invest $450.

 

Anyways, I'm 5'8"-5'9" weighing roughly 145-150 pounds. I'll be slapping some marker barons on these. I'm going to be using these for in-the-resort skiing on pow days, slack-country touring/kicker on bluebird days and using them on the occasional roger's pass expedition or sled mission. I don't want to sacrifice the ability to charge but I want to get a little tricky with them as well. (I'll probably be avoiding the park on these until my baron's break.) Am I asking too much for a ski? What would you do?

If you don't want to sacrifice the ability to charge then don't buy a floppy pow ski with a 15m turn radius...Or any pow ski Armada makes.

What would you suggest then?

You could start by looking at those which are immortalized within his post . . .

At your size,  the 185 would be plenty of ski.  Charger, perhaps not.  But in my experience, the JJ was the most common rental ski at cat or heli ops in BC the last couple of seasons.

 

Either they're giving them away or they just work?
