I've been snowboarding for almost 20 years, and would consider myself an competent intermediate. I also like ice climbing and spring alpine climbing. I'm 37 years old, 6'2, 185lbs. Looking for a ski that will be good for hut trips, backcountry touring, skin up, ski down type of stuff and the occasional resort day. I have a bunch of other hobbies, so I cant really afford, or justify a 'quiver', especially since I'm new to skiing. Would be great to find one ski that would do everything.
A few friends have suggested the Rossignol Smash 7 in 180cm. I've found that ski locally for a great deal. I've been told this is a good ski for me given my (lack of) experience, intended use, and the price is right. The only thing that is keeping me from pulling the trigger is the fact that almost all of the reviews I've read about this ski mention that it's for the lighter, usually teen rider. Like I mentioned, I'm 185lbs without any gear or clothing on. Is this still a good ski for me at my weight?
Thanks to everyone in advance for your replies!
