im saving up for new twins this summer but im not sure what length to buy. ive been skiing on 163's for the last two seasons and im used to them, but im going to park city next year so i need longer skis in order to go fast enough to clear the big tables. im 5 foot 11 and weigh 155 and the bindings would be centered so help me out should i get 169, 175, or 179?? i heard that longer skis are harder to spin on.
beween a 169 to a 179 there is only 10cm and a 175 is about 5cm different(either side). Thats not a big difference so wont make any difference in spinning. Its like when i went from a 158 to a 170. you dont even notice except for the stability and balance of the longer ski. go 179. you'd be fine on a 175 but a 179 would be better.
