    All of 2015 and 2016 I was on a 68.5 but I am not on a 67 at the start of this season.

    Wait a minute, where's the option for 40 inch?
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    65.25 on my XT
    65.5 on my 9500
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Been on a 67 for years and just went to a 68 this year.

    @dchristman, I forgot the " ;) " it was a bad joke. I could have put 40 and N/A for the other two events. I'm a bad tricker and certainly not a bird of flight.

    I ride a 66" XT but when on a more traditional shape ski I go for a 67".
    66" Denali that I rode last summer also was right for me too, lighter and faster cross course than many 67" skis.

    Currently on a 65 but I really think I should be on a 66. Going to try one this year.
    In gear. Hit It. Thank You!

    @RazorRoss3 You are assuming the event is slalom based on the ski size options.
    Even if that is a correct assumption, I could (and I just may) ride my "trick" ski in a slalom event into 39off at 28KPH thanks to ZBS :-)

    Although it does seem unfairly valued with the same ball count as a 30/LL pass.

    slippery slalom is hard, I could never get to 2 ball. Knew a number of people who could run several passes in college though.

    @Horton Loaded poll question though because it is sort of brand and ski design specific. I am on a 66" Goode (xt)..but would ride a 67 rev....and maybe a 68 D3.

    68 Strada. Too bad my ski didn't grow with me this winter

    Wish they had a bonus buoy count for increased body fat index

    On a 67 last season. My 3 skis over the prior 20 years were 68's. I may go back to a 68 this year.
  • thagerthager Posts: 4,570 Mega Baller
    67" 16 Vapor, with short-deep settings.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Was on a 68" Nomad, moving to a more appropriately sized 67" ARC this year.

    Good ol' normal curve results.

    I answere 68" because that is what I would ride in a conventional ski. Ia riding a 66" Goode Mid right now though.

    @Zman No need to try as the 65.25 works great. Overall I dont think the 66 was as well liked and most skiers with success on the ski have been on the 65.

    On a regular type ski I can use a 68" but prefer 69" or 70" ski due to being a fat guy. The GOODE 66" wide ride is the ski Chet suggested for me a few years ago. He said I was a Big wide guy and needed a Big Wide ski. The Goode 66" WR has been a great ski for me. I have a like new 2015 68" Obrien conquer (I got very cheap) that has three sets on it. When my 2009 GOODE 66" WR gives out I am going to give the Conquer a try. I keep hoping to get motivated and lose 20 lbs but that is another story.
