Going back and forth on which ski to buy. Seems like some good deals out there on both skis. I've not skied either ski so I'll put the question to the gear geeks here. I'm looking for a wider ski for new snow/natural snow, tree skiing (which means bumps too) here in the east, mostly Western PA skiing. I already have a sub 80mm for groomer cruising but want to get a second ski for natural snow and off piste. I'm thinking to go for one of these skis in a 180. I know the only difference between these skis is the metal in the Brahma. Here's the vital statistics:
Male age 61, strong skier but not technically perfect, weight, 210 lbs. 5'9'' height.
