He likes to buy a high quality ski that will last him a while. He is just a hair under 6'0" and weighs around 195-200lbs. He is an advanced skier who is looking for a good all-mountain ski. We live in Minnesota, so frequently ski groomed, but also head out to Colorado once a year. He also is often skiing with our 4 year old, so needs a versatile ski. He is looking at the Volkl AC50 or Atomic Crimson Ti and is hearing varied opinions on them. He would probably get a 176 length?!?
