Ski Size advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have found a couple pair of last year's Atomic Sugar Daddy's (99mm underfoot) and I am not sure if I want the 183 or 193. I am 6'3" tall and weigh 230 lbs and am an excellent East Coast skier, but new to powder. I have a pair of skis that I like on groomers and back East so these skis will be powder day only skis. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums! For pure powder use in your height in weight, no question -- go for the 193.

193....no question at ALL.....

the 183 would give you that "over the handlebars" feeling for sure!!!!

Agree with the 193cm.

FWIW, my review. Fortunately, with same boot size, swapped and skied a buddies 183cm Sugar Daddy 3 weeks ago and liked its quick and nimble rather damp feel and turns well. It’s a good all round board with a preference for straighter faster lines (your East Coast background?). Did not have the powder to really test a float (can’t imagine it is a problem) but nicely busted the 6 inch crud I was hanging around. I’m 190 and while the twin seems to ski a little longer than posted, I would have preferred the 193cm. BTW, my friend is 180 lbs and likes the 183cm although he does more goofing with it in tight quarters and some park.

Good Skiing!
