Am going to Niseko and then Kurodake next January.
Thinking of picking up some fat skis before I go as the rentals are quite pricy.would love to have some recommendations.
I amd 169cm (5'6.5") and weigh 74 kg, Am currently skiing on rossignol Z5s which i have had for 5 years, absolutely love them, they are quite short (156) but that is quite handy when one has to ski in narrow chutes with rocks. Did demo some 10cm longer and actually no problems.
Also looking for some powder skis as I found when skiing in Craigieburn (a steep club field in NZ) the Zeniths sank.
I would consider myself advanced to expert, quite an aggressive skier but no longer a spring chicken.
Have been looking at twin tip options, but not interested in riding rails or doing tricks.
Looking at some165 Line prophet with 90mm under foot would they be long enough for Niseko
