Good thoughts. The 100-110mm ski would be the freeride ski. I like having narrower ski for those firmer days, groomers, moguls and soft days but hasn't snowed recently. I'd use this ski when with the kids who like to go in and out of the trees. I'd probably be on this ski most of the time and only on the wider ski when without the kids when there's 3-4+ inches of new snow. Sounds like I'm talking myself into 2 freeride skis and maybe an upper 80 or low 90mm waist as my narrow ski. Or should I stick with a low to mid-80mm ski FR ski? Decisions, decisions.
My opinion differs from what appears to be (with exceptions, of course) the general consensus.
I'm also 150lbs but a bit taller (5'10") with 2 skis plus 1 pair of rock skis currently in my active quiver. For me, 66 is my narrow ski and my wide ski is 84. The 84 is plenty wide for my weight whenever I stay home from work with the flu (Wasatch powder days). I have skied the 84 in all conditions, but for bumps, groomers, and scraped surfaces, the true, narrow waist of 66mm is so much more fun. Whenever I hear the word "narrow" being used to decribe a mid 80s width, I am surprised, but to each his own.
