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.
i was in the same boat as yu dude... i skiied 160 ar5's... loved them.. then wanted to go bigger so now i have 180 ar5's true cenetered... and im 5"10 and weigh 130 pounds. soo 180's wood prob be excellent for you man
so can you still spin fast with them?
why would you wanna spin fast???

^dont worry about that bro. 5'11 and your riding 163's. theve been too small for you for a while. get the 179s. those are even a lil small for you

179 would be the Perfect size ski for you, considering you are same height/weight as me and i am 178. You don't really notice the difference in spinning, unless you're doing it off flat ground. Go 179, you won't regret it.

skier 11 obviously you want to spin fast to do bigger spins. even off huge jumps
