HI this is my first post.
OK. Here is the deal. I am 46, 6'1 weigh 205lbs.
Started skiing when I was 7, have been off the slopes for the past 10 years, Been living in Hawaii Windsrufing and Surfing, Well I just moves to Flagstaff AZ, and hit the slopes today for my first time in 10 years, wow was it fun, spring conditions, so not that great of snow. I tried a Grizzly's 177cm. I am use to skiing on Slalom Skis, fast, quick turning, etc. Back in the day always had 2 pairs of skis, a good slalom ski, and a softer pair for new snow powder. It took me 2 runs to my feet back but then it all came together, I enjoyed the skis, though I have to get use to these "wide" body skis. I consider myself and advanced / expert skier. Slowing down now as I get older. I am sure a narrower ski that is a little stiffer would have worked better today in the very hard packed / icy spots conditions but was wondering if there is anything else I should be looking at. End of the season so I noticed there are some really good deals right now on skis, ie, grizzly's can be had for under $600.00 now. Hard to pass up but before I pull the trigger is there anyhting else I should look at? Oh yeah being 6'1 and 205 should I consider the 184's over the 177's
