I've been doing some research for new skis and think I've decided on the Line Prophet 90's.

A little about me....I am a big guy, 6'5", 240. I am an aggressive skier. I love spending my time in the bumps, trees, and back bowls. I spend a little time in the park, but that time is decreasing as I get older (I am 28). I like speed, but I enjoy challenging terrain over groomers any day. I am an Midwest skier, based in Ohio. I travel to Western NY & PA regularly in the winter but there is not a whole lot going on where I usually ski other than some trees when we get dumped on. I've been out west quite a bit and have handled most of the toughest runs at Vail, Copper, Steamboat, Breck, & Arapahoe. I am planning a trip to Summit County in late February and am looking to replace my Line Backside's (182) that are about 7 seasons old.

I would really appreciate any advice you can give based on my size and skiing profile.

It sounds like the Prophet 90's are ideal for me, leaning towards going with the 186. While I wish I skied enough pow to justify the 100's, I spend most of my time on the east coast and in the bumps.

Thanks in advance for any comments!
