opinion please on skis

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am 5'9" and 185#. I make a couple trips out west and ski 91% on ungroomed. Mostly blacks, double black type stuff. Some trees and sometimes a mogul or two. I live in Iowa and my home hill is 475' of groomed ice. I am looking to get new skis and like the Mythic Rider or Volkl Ac40. Leaning more to the MR about a 172 but is it going to be way too much ski for the home hill? Looking for some opinions

Yes. Too much and too wide for 475' of groomed ice. Try Fischer RX8 or progressor.

I wouldn't go wider than 70mm waist for that kind of skiing. There are a lot of good choices in that ballpark.

The MR is fantastic but probably a bad idea for the home mountain. I'd get something narrow under foot for home and rent bigger when you come west

How did you come up with 91%? Is that number rounded off ie. 90.51% or 91.49%. Just curious.

SierraJim is having a great sale on Mythic Riders if you hurry. Check out this thread.
