I'm an advanced/expert skier, 5'11", 170lbs, ski entirely in the West...lots of days in the wetter heavier snow of Washington and BC, but also a fair number of days in Utah.
Looking for a new all-mountain ski. Spend most of my time off-piste...bowls, trees, etc. But, unfortunately, usually can't get up for fresh tracks on powder days, so I'm out on weekends skiing with everyone else - meaning, I'm often skiing stuff that gets carved up pretty quickly.
Seems like everyone's in love with the Blizzard Bonafides. But, K2 Shreditors look good, too.
Would love thoughts from people familiar with either or both of these skis.
And, if I go with the Blizzards, having trouble deciding between the 173 and 180. I'm on the lighter side for an aggressive skier, and worried that the 180s will be too much. Also worried about skiing 180s in trees.
Thanks in advance!
