Please help! I dont know much about skiing, forgiveness or spring but A friend has invited me to stay in Nelson BC for a couple of weeks in march and we will be skiing in Whitewater which describes its runs as difficult, more difficult and extreme!
I am now the proud owner of one pair of 2004 volant machete sin (175cm) skis (apparently good all mountain but a bit heavy) and a pair of (2007) rossignol x-flight 2 (173) skis (just found them in a local charty shop so i had them since they were cheap, look quite modern and look quite fat/light to me)
Which should i take? Whitewater is meant to be all about deep powder but its towards the end of the season.
I'm 180cm, slim (70kg) and was confident skier for during 2 weeks of alpine skiing 20 years ago - I really want the skis best suited to powder conditions. In honesty i'll probably be a floundering mess in all that steep and deep snow whichever skis i take but ive got to try and make a half decent impression!!!
Maybe the longer ones are best since more area... i just dont know!!!
