I attended a demo day (my first ever) at Hunter Mtn this weekend. I tried a lot of ski’s and decided on the Dynaster Powertrack 84.
A friend that I had convinced to go (he had no intention of buying) also like the ski enough to buy it.
I only was able to try the 169 while my friend only got on the 176.
My friend (a better skier, probably a lower expert) is 5’7” and about 168, while I’m 5’11” about 165. I need the ski quickly so I ordered the 169 but I’m having nagging doubts about the length. My friend ordered the 176.
I’m currently on 10 yr old 170 atomic R11's (obviously no rocker).
I love to ski trees and steeps – given this should I stick to the 169. Where, besides flat out speed would I miss the extra length? I ski mostly VT but get out west a few days per yr.
I probably have a day to change my mind so I would appreciate any quick feed back,
