We finally had a great powder day at Squaw Valley a couple of weeks ago... and, my wife then concluded that she needs powder skis (which she does!) To be realistic, these are skis that will be used 100% in the resort and most likely at Squaw. She's 5'8" and 150 lbs. She loves her Blizzard Black Pearls at 166 for groomers and spring-like off piste conditions. But, they were nowhere near wide enough for her in a couple of feet of powder. After combing the interwebs, it looks like the Savory 7 is probably a damn fine powder ski for her. My question now is what length? For a ski that's really only for soft days, 170 seems too short. 178 might be okay with enough rocker, but that also seems like a big step up from 166. What do you think? Thanks!
