After fondling some skis today (obSethed, Apache Chief, Bridge, Wall, Gotama, HellBent, Extreme, Chopstick, Watea 84, and some Armadas) I think I'm ready to commit to the '08 Gotama.

I'm looking for some opinions on the ideal length. This will be a 2-ski quiver.

1- Hardpack daily driver = 175 Fischer RX 6 (114-68-98)

2- More than 4" of fresh snow = Gotama

176 or 183?

Intended use for the Goats:

-East Coast

-Mostly tree skiing

-Jay Peak, Stowe

6'

135lbs

Level 7-ish

I'm juggling with 183 since it's a twin & 176 since it's for trees. Might hit small cliffs on the pow days (10 feet max).

Leaning toward the 183...
