Can you advise please? My son aged 18 and 6' weighing some 135pounds (we do feed him, but .....) is spending 3 months in Banff to do his CSIA 1 and 2 exams. He is a pretty nimble skier, agile etc etc. He can get down most things with some style, and has done a weeks' off-piste course also. I'm trying to put a shortlist of suitable skis together. He will probably demo some but of course it's just impossible to try all brands, models and lengths so it would be helpful if you could help me narrow it down a bit. The firm advice seems to be to go for a 78mm +/- . Models I have looked at include the Nordica Nitrous, Apache Recon, Head 78, Salomon XW Tornado. I like the look of the Scott Neo but at 82mm it may be too wide. Any thoughts on which might be the best bet - especially length, given his weight? Thanks all.
