I am 6"4" about 250# I have been skiing the northern Adirondack woods for a few years working my way up to some Alpina Back Country skis with parallel sides and NNN BC bindings. Much better then my older skis but... The down hills are holding me back. If there are many turns I can't stay on the path and avoid the trees. I was thinking shorter and wider shaped skis but the recommended weights I have seen were all about 180# and up. 250# is a long way up from 180#.
I want to buy what is right for me not the closest thing they happen to have in the store!
BTW I don't think too wide is an issue I can away's go with my current skis for well tracked flat land.
