I am an East coast Skier with a trip planned to Whistler this January. I am looking for a ski recommendation and good shops with good demo selections in WHistler. I have been looking online and most shops seem to have limited longer length skiis.
I currently ski on 176cm Elan Speedwaves that I love in the eastern hardpack conditions but I am thinking for Whistler in late January a more all around 50/50 groomer/powder ski would be better so I plan on renting some high end demo while there.
I am 230lbs advanced/expert skier who has been skiing for 25 years. My preference usually is towards solid GS style skiis but for this trip I need versatility and ease in the powder. I think I am going to need something in the 185-190 cm range.
DOes anyone have a ski recommendation and /or shop recommendation that has boards for big guys . Most shops seems to stop at 176-180cm. I guess they cater to the bulk of the crowd.
Thanks for any comments
