165-180 lbs (depending on the season)
Advanced skier - ski most of the mountain.
Like to be able to vary turn size.
Like performance in crud and powder.
Bump performance is less of a priority.
Middle of the road in terms of aggressiveness.
What size Blizzard Bushwacker should I get - 173 or 180 ???
I feel I am right between the 173 and 180 and can't figure out which way to go.
In a Brahma, I would probably not consider the 180 due to metal in the Brahma.
However, in the Bushwacker, I could see sizing up due to the lighter weight.
Plus they are built slightly short - the 173 actually measures 171 - and the 180 is closer to 178 in actual length.
I have also heard some say it skis short, but other say it skis to length.
Any one else have input.
My previous ski was a Volkl Carver Plus in 184 mm (circa ~ 1998) - which is why I need something new.
