I'm 5'9" 185 pounds, solid aggressive skier. I am looking at the cochise for an all mountain ski around alta and snowbird but also getting in the trees around utah resorts. Trying to decide between the 175 or 185. Currently skiing on a pair of 5 yo Elan 777, 176cm. Also, any recs on bindings for this ski?
If you're coming off a 177cm ski and like the way it skis I would probably recommend staying around that length especially as the 777 is quite a bit narrower under foot than the Cochise (77 vs 108). The 185 might feel a little to sluggish at first. If you were coming off something wider and longer I would probably recommend the 185 just based on your height, weight, and that you're skiing Alta/Snowbird.
