Hi everyone. I am looking to get either the Blizzard Bushwacker or Blizzard Brahma.

They are both 88 at the waist. I will post the full specs below.

I ski mostly Killington, Whitface (East Cost Resorts).

I am 6'1 and weigh 220. I would consider myself to be a strong intermediate skiier.

Sidecut 125 / 88 / 110 mm - Radius 19,0 m (180 cm)
Construction Sandwich Sidewall Titanium - Poplar-Bamboo-Paulownia-Wood, Double Titanium
Technology Flip Core 3D, Sidewall
Camber

Tip&Tail Rocker

 

BUSHWACKER

Looks like you would do better with the Brahma... probably would be happy with both 180 and 187. Not really sure what to recommend here regarding size...

 

your weight suggests the 187, but will also depend on how skilled you are! Paging @Philpug for better advice! :-)

Any suggestions on boots to match this up with?

Best way to find the boots is to go see a boot fitter... that's how you should find the right boot!

Boots are supposed to match your feet, your skiing interests, and your ability, not the skis. No one except for a bootfitter who is looking at your feet can advise you on what boot, and what size. Also understand that different models of the same make can fit very differently, so the fact that a boot of a given make works for you does not mean that other boots by the same maker will work.
