Also, if possible I'd like to stay with a twin tip. thanks for the help! Oh and I'm 6'0" and about 160
90mm 179 is an ok bump ski out here, FYI you never have to ski bump here if you dont want to but they will make you a better skier.
IMO if you not teaching going skinnier than 80-90 mm is pretty dumb in the cottonwood resort, in PC a groomerish ski would probably be better choice.
Cottonwood Resorts(alta,snowbird,Brighton,Solitude) and Snowbasin,Powder Mountain, and Beaver(the last three which never have bumps ever) go fatter and maybe alittle longer.
Fatter skis from most versital to the most float I would recommend. all are twins but the Legend.
186 Dynstar Legend Pro, 183 Volkl Gotama, 183 Volkl Katana, 181 Atomic Thug, 179 Hellbent. and tons of other various boutique ski companies as well.
If your going to Park City area or Sundance a narrow ski would be recommend anything from a cheater GS ski, to bump skis would probably be nice to have.
80 percent of the days out here you will be on your Bigger ski, especially if your allways searching out soft snow, there is almost top to bottom powder at Snowbird even days after the storm let alone Snowbasin,solitude and brighton where almost noone skis. and to be honest I would think you Line were quite good mogul skis remember we dont get troughed out moguls like the east or colorado gets, we get them but thats just a sign it needs to snow again.
also dont listen to Volklskier1 if he post in this thread the guy is a complete tool and he will probably tell you that since your not some pro big mountain skier that your current skis are far to big for you and you should be skiing something like SL ski all the time so you can get better. So year just a heads up there are people on this site that post advice but would never back it up in person.
