Sounds like a fantastic trip.  Sorry I couldn't be more helpful in recommending skis in that size range.  I haven't rented or demoed many of that type -- most have been in the 70 to 74mm range, which I've rented for a day or two when near the Rockies on a business trip (and no fresh snow).  The Dynastar Sultan 85 and Nordica Tempest were the exceptions.  I own a Dynastar 88mm ski (the Mythic Rider), but as it is no longer made, I can't suggest you seek it out.  Kind of a heavy ski for a lighter fellow, too.....I'm 6'2", 220 lbs....so maybe not the best choice for you.  Excellent ski, though....great off piste.....

Enjoy the holiday, and remember to post back here with not only a trip report (photos!!!) but also equipment reviews.  We're all gear nuts here, so love hearing other's experiences.

Cheers, and have fun!
