Curious about what ski and what size to get. I want a softer snow / powder ski that can still hit groomers for those days where I spend about 70% off piste and 30% on. I don't want to sacrifice too much float to where skiing powder will be burdensome, but don't want an entirely one dimensional powder ski either. I have never skied on anything above 177, but I am looking at the 177 and 185 in the Patron and El Capo. I know the Patron is a bit more powdery and the Capo a bit more all-mountain, but I weigh a lot less than some of my friends who rock 190ish 115-125 waisted skis, so I am wondering if I might be able to get the same kind of float from the El Capo.
