My first post, so be gentle!

I ski about 10 days a year and am a level 7 skier. I like to do a little bit of everything (piste, off piste, groomers, steeps, trees), but I will not spend much time in the moguls. I am 6' 3" and weigh 200 lbs.

I will always ski out west, with an annual trip to Alta. Also, I prefer shorter radius turns and I don't ski as fast as I used too!

I demo'ed a pair of Legend 8000's and the 8800'swhen it snowed 20+ at Alta this March. Loved them both. I am considering buying a pair of the 8000's (I will demo a pair of the 8800's if it snows that much), but am confused on what size. I think the pair I rode were the 172's in each.

I have not bought a pair of ski's in awhile.

Anyway, what size would you recomend and why? Any other ski's I should be looking at?

Thanks ahead of time,

Chris
