I like skiing anything but some yrs I may not even get anything but crud on the mountain in snowmass as I ski early Dec. Then mn so I could be on ice.
I am thinking brahma 180 but ever time I go to the store everyone tells me to go wider.
My daughter in on volkl old racing skis she is 5'2 115 she likes to go fast but also likes moguls she will do powder but 80% is on trail
We ski together. I would say we are advance skiers. We both like to push the skis. Not sure even what to get her.
Let me try to help translate:
Hi, I'm new here and would really appreciate some advice. I spent a few hours with the search function and reading advice to skiers of similar size and skill level but I'm still lost.
I am looking for new skis for myself and for my 17 year old daughter. We usually ski together. I am 6'2", 210 lbs and she is 5'2" and 115 lbs. Obviously we are not looking for the same skis. We mostly ski in Minnesota but do one trip to Snowmass/Ajax. I'd estimate 80% of our skiing is on firm groomers and ice, but we'll occasionally ski moguls or shallow powder. I currently ski on K2 Apaches and she is on old Volkl race skis. We typically ski fast and prefer skis that like to be pushed.
After reading reviews, I thought 180cm Brahma's would be the ski for me but shop rats keep suggesting I go wider.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Is this close to what you wanted to post?
