Long time lurker, novice poster here.
After reading many threads I think I have selected a ski that will suit my style of skiing. I am considering the K2 Extreme with schizo bindings.
I am a little undecided between the 164 or 169's and would like an experienced east-coast opinion since there is a lot of conflicting info on the reviews/threads with regard to sizes. If anyone would like to comment, my specs are:
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: >165 without gear, >175 with.
Level: Inter-Advanced some say aggressive carver (new to freestyle, new to twin tips) First Pair of twin tips and going to try a little park and jumping this year. Current skis are 156cms Volkl AC1’s and I do like the control I have with these shorter skis in the technical stuff but love cruising at faster speeds on groomed slopes.
Terrain: East Coast skier, groomed, ice, slush, very little powder but enjoy it when its here, 25% Park (is the plan) - 75% all mountain.
History: Starting skiing at a young age, skied the east coast until I was 17 (annual seasons passes, 3 times a week min) then stopped for the last 10 years. Started again last year and I am progressing very quickly and have by far outgrown by Volkl's.
Sorry for the long post and thank you very much for any input.
