Jeff McDonaldwrote a question about La Sportiva Hang5 Alpine Touring Ski on November 3, 2013
I need advice on length as there are only two to choose from.
Me: 150lb 5'11, advanced skier, 90% touring in British Columbia midwinter-spring conditions.
I currently ski a 182 liberty ski and a 188 S7 but want something for Ski Mnting in the deeper variable snow here. however ive never skied a wide ski like this with such a long radius (S7 has a a very short radius, and its very heavy so i rarely tour with it) I'm wondering if i can get away with the 177 here as im a bit lighter than average for my height, so it will be more turny in tech terrain, but will the long radius help with stability at higher speeds?
