Ski Sizing Help - 5'8", 115 lbs
I'm a 16-year-old male. After skiing for several years when I was younger I merged into snowboarding. Now that I am about ready to grow out of my current snowboard, I have decided that I would like to go back to skiing. So I am looking for twin-tip skis that will be used mainly on skiing all-mountain but also a little park.
I'm about 5'8" and 115lbs but am still growing.
What size and brand/style of skis should I be looking for?
hot damn you must be all bones if you weigh 115 and are 5'8...go out and buy yourself a steak....

im just startin freestyle this year 2 and i also ski a lot of all mountain and some park. i got this years silencers and they r great skis anywhere but pow. there are pretty cheap too
size: us newschoolers won't help you out. Someone will say your should be on 186's and another on 169's.
ski-tm's, invaders, PE's
well how am i supposed to know what size skis to get? i haven't found an exact sizing chart.
its all on preference i do anything around my forehead wit them standing up straight im 5'11" and im gettin the 169s
If you are going to be learning to ski all over again go around 170 but if you are good you could go up to 180 easy
hes still growing so he should get longer. like in the 170s
good point.......... my bad
public enemys, line chronics, rossignol scratch etc are good. where do you ski?
im 2inches taller and like 20 lbs heavyer
but try the scratch fs(last years) in a 167
u should like them. pm me if u would like a lil more info on em

If you cant live without skiing, I can live with you.
Big troubles 176 or Fisher Kehua's 177
And if you would like information on which boots you should buy ask these people:
i was skiing blacks in steamboat springs, colorado before i switched to snowboarding so i'm already pretty experienced on trails, just not so much on park. and where i ski - i live in indianapolis :( so i ski in smaller resorts throughout michigan and west virginia. i also usually ski out west in colorado and utah.
