Gear Question

I'm trying to figure out what size to go...

Posted on

I'm trying to figure out what size to go with and keep going back and forth between the 193 and 183. I'm 6'1" 190ish with an athletic build. I ski mostly at Crystal Mountain, WA and Alpental but like to hit Mt. Baker and Whistler too.

If you think that this may not be the best ski for the job suggest away!

I am 6 foot and 175lbs aand last year I was in the same boat. I ski bridger bowl mostly and went with the 183 for the tight lines and frequent billy-goating. I love the ski. Everything that was promised and more. Fast, light, stable, responsive, and playful. After a few days of getting used to the extra gear I had now found, I was wishing I had the 193. Don't get me wrong, the 183 will do anything and excel at it, but if you are an aggressive skier with a race or big mountain background, I would suggest the 193. I have skied volkl my entire life and trust their product ultimately and the bottom line with the shiro... Best ski volkl has come up with yet!
