    What's the best ski in a 186cm length?

    191's and 188's don't fit in the new car with the rear seat folded down and the front passenger seat all the way back. I've measured, and 186cm fits just barely. So I'm looking for the best ski in 186. Idk 184 might work ok too, but I like to ski fast on occasion so the extra length is a bonus.

    I'll take a beating on the trade in.

    Do those extenders fold up? If so, it would open up more options.

    I like Armadas btw.

    It'd be easier to buy 19X's and cut the tails off until they fit in the car.

    Are you aggressive? Not at skiing, you're on TGR so you're aggressive at that, but I mean at putting skis in a car? Try and up your game a bit: those 186's'll fit. Or just buy Elan fagsticks in a 186. Those'll fit easy.

    Edit to add, if they make a ripstick in a 191, that'll fit easy too. So you can still rip bro brah length and have it fit in your hatchback or any rocketbox that was otherwise only long enough for (pffft) snowboards!

    In all seriousness, the x88 is a fantastic ski. Even in the 180 length.

    Another option is to buy whatever length fits and then use a sharpie to write in the desired length you need on the ski itself. Solves all your problems

    Ski box???

    FWIW, 184-186 is my sweetspot for just about every ski type except SL.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    The new billy goat Lhasa pow lotus is pretty sweet.
    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
