Looking for some new skis, and am wondering what the general consensus is about the best waist width to look for these days.
Advanced: East Coast blacks aggressively, with a blue thrown in for leisurely runs. Mainly groomers, some off trail when available, avoid the bumps when possible. Getting the family into the sport, so the bunnies will get some of my time as well.
Given these 'specs', what is the MINIMUM waist you'd go with? Being 20 and 40 minutes away from two different resorts in VA, the majority of my skiing will be on groomers, with the occasional (hopefully more often as the fam catches up) trip to the WV mountains.
I'm thinking nothing smaller than 88, but 100 doesn't seem like a bad lower end.
Help me educate myself so I can make a decision I won't regret.
