* If you're going to own 2 pairs of skis, make sure they are really different from each other. The Watea 94 & a Dynastar carver are really different from each other, so I like that idea.
The other poster's suggestion of a Volkl AC30 (a narrow waisted mid-fat) & a Dynastar carver didn't sound very good to me as they are very similar to each other.
* I'm 5'9.5" and 180# - about your size - and I like my carvers around 170cm long (+/- 2cm). I'm 46 years old and don't go super fast any more, but I do enjoy shaping a variety of turns with the 170cm carvers. However, the 170cm carvers are still stable enough to let me enjoy going relatively fast when I feel like it. But... if you have a serious need for speed and like just long radius turns, then look at a 180cm long carver as another poster suggested.
* I don't know much about the Watea 94, but it seems like for a wide ski you want something that is a good compromise between a wide Eastern ski and a wide Western ski. With that in mind, the Watea 94 just might be a good choice for you. I'm in the Pacific Northwest & my new snow off-piste ski is 105mm wide under boot, and I do like the width. (off-piste == off the groomed trails)
Since I ski the Pacific Northwest (wet & heavy snow), I like a little bit stiffer wide ski than I probably would like if I skied Utah & Colorado (dry snow). So keep in mind where you plan to travel to for the stiffness of your wide ski. For length at your size look at 175cm to 180cm or so.
Hope this helps. Have fun and enjoy your skiing!
