I will be skiing about 20 days this year all over Alberta and B.C.! Thanks for your help.
The ski may be a little long, depending on how much you like to do short carved turns, but the 182 will be more stable at speed. I'm 6' 3" and 220 lbs and ski at 175cm Head Supershape all over the mountain (with the exception of really deep pow). It's a 13m turn radius (vs AMC 76's 16m).
ExpertSkier.com had good things to say about the AMC 76:
"Comments on the 76 ranged all over the ski-scape. This is a good indication of the ski's versatility, not only in performance but in terms of technical style and skill level. The one caveat is that the ski does have a speed limit, but we judge it to be worth a test by most recreational skiers seeking that one all around ski.
