I have a basic question that is quite hard for me. Please help and advise..
I am 6'2" and 184 lb (189 cm & 84 kg). I ski in WA ( Crystal & Snoqualmie) on groomed and all mountain (or whatever that means here). I am intermediate adv., that means for me, that I am ok on blue, and with some problems on some black if there are bigger moguls. For example in Snoqualmie on black are not big moguls and I am quite fine, but in Crystal there were a lot and I have some problems to curve around some/ a lot of them. Anyway I am not shy, trying to take the challenge and every weekend/week I go to ski. I am in my mid 30s, so not going crazy but trying to get better and have fun.
I had Rossignol experience 80, 177cm. Great skis, but feel them a bit too short, because the bindings are right in the middle of the ski, and the tip seems shorter. I returned them to REI and I want a replacement and they have K2 85ti ( and 80 as well). I have for 85ti the option to go with 177 cm or 184 cm. What do you think should be the best for me? It is quite important because I go to Whistler in a week. I know that k2 85 is more expensive but my problem is not money, but the best ski for me. I try to go with ski with bindings because is easier for me. I want to continue with REI because they are really nice and seems good.
Thanks a lot, in advance!
