Team. As you may have seen, we are back from our Shiga / Madarao trip and have two more planned to Myoko and Yuzawa next month. Stats: 184cm, 89kg, 40yo. Our instructor this trip managed to progress me to strong intermediate. I’m comfortable on pretty much all groomed runs on resorts. Can get down pretty much anything (but not necessarily enjoy) ungroomed. Linking parallel turns etc. I’ve always just ticked intermediate on the rental form and ended up with a mix of skis, mostly 170-174cm with waists usually 74-77mm. Typical beginner ish skis like Atomic Fibre X, Rossi Experience 74s. After the seemingly epic powder days in Shiga and Madarao and the very friendly tree runs at Madarao, I think I want to try something a bit wider. I don’t have access to Demo days (I don’t think) so I’ll have to take it slow and rent for a few days at a time as I try stuff out. That said, what should I be looking for, for my next rental ski? How big a jump up in waist and do I keep at the 174 sort of length?
