Has anyone skied the Atomic M:EX 04/05 in both the 175 and 185? After talking to ski shop I bought the 185 (haven't mounted them yet). But I keep on going back to the Atomic chart which says I should be on the 175's. I weigh 240, 6'1", and am an expert skier. I bought these skis because I wanted some width to help me from breaking through (and making ankle deep troughs in) the crust/crud in the Sierra's. When I go off piste I make all sorts of arcs depending on the conditions. Will the 175's allow me make SL carves in tight situations but get squirrelly at GS speeds with my wieght? Will the 185's be 2x4's until I get them up to GS speed's? Can I make SL turns on the 185's at a lower speed? Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to demo. Thanks for your opinions.
