Diva in Training
Howdy! I’m looking for recos on all-mountain skis and particularly, thoughts on waist. I ride out East most of the time, advanced/expert and am happiest in the trees. 5’4” and 175 pounds. Currently, I’m on K2 Potion XTIs at 156 and waist of 90. They’re fun and responsive, and so beautifully on groomers and ice, but get extemely chattery when I’m around 40 mph or bumpy hardpack conditions. I’ve demoed a few options but didn’t fall in love, though I did enjoy the Kenjas. My least favorite were the Head Super Joys - way too light. I’m interested in Icelantics but of course can’t demo them anywhere, and specifically the Oracle 100. Is a 100 waist too wide for the East and will it not be quick enough in trees? Or if I stick with 155, will it be fine? Would love any advice on waist or brands. Thanks!
