At the end of last season I demoed some Head Rock n Roll skis in 173cm length and had a lot of fun on them, and now am considering purchasing a pair.
I am male, 6ft tall, but am only like 160lbs, I usually ski blues or blue/blacks. This year I am hoping to learn to ski powder better and maybe bumps. Up until last season I used skiboards and the last one I used was 130cm long and 112mm at the waist.
as I say I was all ready to purchase the Rock n Roll's then I saw the Infernos and was wondering if they would be that much better in powder? Having said that, would the extra width make them a lot harder to initiate a turn on regular snow?
Also length wise, at my height/weight would it make more sense to stick to 173cm or move up to 180cm?
With apologies for all the questions :o)
Oh, I live in Colorado and will likely ski Winter Park/Mary Jane this year again, maybe Copper, also might make a trip down to Wolf creek if I ever get the hang of this powder skiing lark!!
Thanks a lot
p.s. oh yeah, if anyone has recommendations for any other skis then I am all ears
