I'm helping my cousin buy her husband his first modern ski--he's 5'-9", 170 lb. Advanced old fashioned technique--perfect feet-together skidded turns even on pretty steep groomers, and he sometimes likes to do moguls trees, & ungroomed as well, though he hasn't much experience in powder--I'm thinking a narrowish all mtn (14-15 meter sidecut, 70mm underfoot) -- I had in mind some used head monster im70s but I am undecided as to 170 or 165 length. I think he goes fast enought that the heads won't be too stiff to learn to carve on, but I wouldn't mind hear thoughts on that.

Thanks for any advice.
