I don't need no ultra fattie to ski powder!
Um... What? YOU may not need fatties, but the OP feels like he does- and BWPA is addressing his question, albeit with a bit of dick-waving of his own, while you're sitting there telling him to buy skinnies, so it really looks like YOU'RE doing the super-duper dick-waving here... AGAIN!!!! Nobody asked you if you can ski pow with a 75mm waist. Nobody cares
. He wants to know about a pow ski that won't have him heaving when he takes a groomer to the lift to go back up, and no an 88mm waist ski is not a pow ski. You may be able to take it in 2-foot dumps, and so can many others but it is not answering the question that's asked. BWPA is actually adressing a matter congruent with the question at hand. You... Well, you just want to talk about Crystal and how you never need anything above an 80 waist. Good for you.
How the hell do you manage to slither your way into every pow ski thread and talk trash about how you do it on bump skis or toothpicks or something equally retarted? When will you learn to keep your mouth shut when nobody's asking you a question and you have nothing to bring to the table?
As for the OP- Gotamas, BROs, Praxis, Prophet 100, etc. You will want something about 100mm, maybe a little bit more- anything over 105 and you will definately be feeling it on the groomers. From everything I've heard, Gotamas are the bee's knees and rock on pretty much everything, so I'd say if all else fails, at 145lbs you could rock a 176 Goat and love life/pow/etc. If the 176 scares you, I think they make a 168 too, but I think stability may be an issue at that length. Good luck and happy hunting!!!
