I am thinking for the deep days in Lake Tahoe area (yes.. the one which are rarely occurred).
So, I guess anything above 115+ is simply not needed at Lake Tahoe;
So, I think there are 2 interesting skis which I could use:
- Nordica Patron in 185
- Head Cyclic 115 in 181 (unfortunately, Head is making either 180+ and 190+, but not in between)
I am 6' and 200lb advanced-intermediate skier and looking for something wider than my everyday bonafieds (which means I would probably use powder ski about 2-3 times per season, if lucky).
I could demo Patron at Squaw (they have demo) but nobody has Cyclic for demo in Lake Tahoe (as far as I know).
Could anybody gives me a comparison between these two?
P.S. my current ski are in size 180 and it feels great, would it make sense to go longer with "powder" ski, like Patron 193 (I've heard the formula: user height + 10 cm for powder)?
