    Thanks everyone. I ordered the 188s and going to mount with shifts. Will be a primarily inbounds pow ski that also support resort accessed sidecountry missions.

    I am undecided whether to buy the 180 or the 188.
    I'm about 175cm and 76kg.


    So far I have a scrapper in 181 and a QST 106 in 181. I find both skis sufficient.


    I've looked at the 180 once and compared to the QST 106, it's somehow a bit less of a ski. But I personally find 188 a bit too big and bulky for me?


    What is the general opinion?

    thanks!

    For the past three seasons, I rode the 188s. This year, I sold them and bought 185 Bodacious for soft snow and 180 Rustler (Sheeva) 11 for trees and bumps. 5'11" 165lbs. Haven't tried the 180s out, but I think that they are going to be $$$ in the trees.

    Yes, that is clear ;-)

    Perhaps it can still be estimated whether the ski in the above pattern corresponds or rather not.

    I have skied both 188 and 192. Im 6-3 190 and found 188 to be a great balance. Yeah 192 is a little longer but for tree lines and Mach on groomers the 188 is a good balance

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues
