I'm about 5'8", 150 pounds and the 174cm 2013 Ritual is my deep snow ski.  I don't think they're especially stiff, I get plenty of float with them.

they are not wimpy for sure, but I don't find them stiff. I am on the 182. and am about 5"11" and 182 Lbs.

 

I like a fairly beefy ski, as I hae skied Volk, Head and Atomic Race ski for many years. 

 

We also get a fair amount of powder over hard or even icy bumps and wanted a ski that would have the edge hold needed in those conditions and not get deflected nor thrown around.

Great edgehold if you put a bit of force and effort into them. I'd say they reward more active skiing rather than lazy ankle rolling and tipping.  They are stiffer than medium but not ridiculous.  I've got the 190 and I weigh 240.  I don't find it especially floaty in deeper snow.  No sign of flap or chatter at speed if you work them into a carve.  They are light and maneuverable but not new school slarvy.  The tail rocker is minor and gives you an easy clean release but doesn't make them loose like banana rockered skis.
