6 Foot 3 and 180 lbs. Looking for the Shogun to be my all around Ski for everything but a big powder day. However my main love is getting in the trees and having a ski that will pop quick turns in the trees and powder. Should i go with the 182 or the 191? Thanks ahead of time!

I think the 182 will feel small to you, but it will be quicker easier if the trees at your mountain are really tight. While there is not a ton of tip rocker there is definitely a noticeable amount that really helps initiating the turn... If your a good advanced/expert skier and your trees are not 'east coast' tight, then I say go with 191.

What if im an advanced intermediate who is solid on piste, but new to the back country?

Chris, I'm thinking the 182 might in fact be a better choice. Nothing worse than having skis you can't turn! I think you've probably got 1 or 2 more seasons on something in the low 180s and then you'll probably want to go longer. Hope that helps! -Jamey
