I am looking for confirmation on length if I were to get the Nordica Enforcer. I am mid-thirties, 170 lbs, just about 5’11”, and have been skiing for 30 years. Once upon a time I was a level nine, or so, and now I ski somewhere near there. I am leaning toward the 177 and think most reviews support that.
My focus for the ski would be steep off-piste, though I would be using it all over. I rarely ski a ton of fresh powder, so the ski would get more use in crud and chopped up powder. I will spend some time in the bumps, understanding I am not getting a bump ski, and I will spend some of my time on groomers with the family.
I don’t get to pick and choose when I ski based on conditions. So, I am thinking about the right length for the average day. Most of my skiing out west in the next few years will be out of Denver and SLC, with four days out of SLC and four likely in Steamboat this year.
So, input would be appreciated on whether to get the 177 or 185. Thanks very much.
