I skied these last year at Snowbasin and LOVED them. they float with the best of them, they can lay an edge, and bust through crud like a champ! I am 5'9" and 150lbs and the 189 was the right size for me. this year i am getting some marker F12s and going to ROCK this ski.

misprint by backcountry.com - they come in Lengths: 167cm, 178cm, 189cm

if you go with the 185 you will be super stoked, i think there is a place for a traditional camber and this is the ski for you, Paul Parker did a great job with this one!

though i wish this was a yes or a no, it's not.
allot goes into a boot fit.
these do run shorter than most boots i fit.
they have a low instep and don't fit a large lower leg that well.
all this said they are great boots if they fit, i wold always recommend an insole.
i would also look at the Dalbello Krypton.

these work well with large calves, as for the ankles -- they are a tight fit, however if you live near a good boot fitter they will be able to modify the shell (something that all boot-fitters should be able to do) and then you should have a killer combo. the ID liner is a great start in getting a killer fit. also i would recommend a custom insole to stabilize your foot.

it will mold, but i would go to a shop and get fitted. i work as a masterfit boot fitter and i have put some wide paws in these boots. but you never know until you put your feet in them. check out the Nordica 3 pice boot (kinda a bastardized Krypton) i think it is wider. also the Full tilts are 100mm but they have a super low instep. you could check out the Axion 12 from Dalbello, it is a 4 buckle that has 3 buckle tendencies.

they are a tad heaver, however that is because they are using thicker plastic. the last is a 98mm and the FT last is 100mm. they are both great boots but i have found that the Dalbellos allow for more modifications and i like the ID liner better. but i always say with boots. go to a bootfitter and get someone to look at your feet.
