Just bought my daughter some Rossi Voodoo BC 90s . . .

. . . but am a little concerned about the width.  She spend as little time on groomers as possible, so a fairly wide ski for off-piste seemed to be the way to go.  However, she really wants to spend more time in the bumps.  Is this ski too wide?  It's very light and supposedly very quick edge-to-edge for a ski that wide.  Anybody got any experience taking this ski into the mogul field (not professionally, just recreational).

 

We live and ski in central Colorado.

GREAT CHOICE,!! THEY ARE FOR ADVANCED , BUT GET THE RIGHT LENGTH AND SHE WILL BE GOLDEN! I RECOMMENDED THESE FOR SOME OF MY CUSTOMERS WHO WERE LOOKING FOR THAT SAME POWDER/BUMP/FREERIDE AND THE VOODOO ALSO CAME IN A 140 FOR THAT SHORT/LIGHTWEIGHT YOUTH LOOKING FOR AREAL ADULT CONSTRUCTED SKI TODO IT ALL! WHICH ARE HARD TO FIND SO SHORT. OH YEA , AND WE DONT EVEN CARRY ROSSI.

Thanks for the stoke!  My daughter is light but agressive and an advanced skier.  Had no problem ripping the top of Lone Peak at Big Sky 3 years ago before we left Montana, and that was on the ultra-beginner k2 tru love ski.  She's bigger and stronger now, so this ski should rock.  We got the 160--now I'm concerned that may be too long.  They had some 150s, so I suppose I could trade return them and trade.  But with the twin tip, they should ski a little shorter; there's a lot of surface contact length lost with the tail turned up.

I DO NOT KNOW HER HEIGHT OR WEIGHT , BUT AS YOU SAID THE TWIN WILL SKI A LITTLE SHORTER THAN A CARVER THE SAME SIZE, THE ONLY TIME THE LENGTH MIGHT BE A ISSUE IS IN THE TREES, WHERE YOU STILL HAVE TO WHIP AROUND A 160, TWIN  OR CARVER.  IN THE BOWLS AND OUT ON THE WIDE OPEN SHE WILL BE TEARIN' IT UP EITHER WAY!!!!

kids on the race team at stowe use similar skis for skiing outside of gates. 90mm is hardly fat.

She's 5'5", 110 Lbs.  I know the length will be perfect in the open and in the bowls.  She carves a quicke turn, so I'm not really even worried in the trees.  My only concern is moguls, especially since she's expressed a desire to spend a lot more time in the bumps (chip off the old block, I guess).
