I don't know much about ski sizes, so I'm looking for advice/people to help me out.
So a 2 months or so ago, I went to Ski Rack to get some new skis. Had one of employees help me out. They didn't have much in stock, but I saw a pair that looked like they would work out ok. Solomon foils, 174cm. I talk to the employee guy about them, tell him I'm looking to do all types of skiing, and probably get back into park (didn't ski last year, had surgery). I'm 5'10 about 165-70 pounds. I've been skiing for 6 or 7 years, and I know what I'm doing on the mountain. The employee there said the 174's would work fine on any terrain I ski, including the park. I go for it, buy the skis and mount on some bindings.
After looking around online, most of the guides and everything say that 174 is real big for a kid my size, looking to ski around some park. It's makin me worry pretty bad, cause I dropped over 600 on skis, bindings and mounting them. I'm gonna be skiing at Jay Peak this year, and looking to ski all terrain. Are these skis going to be too big to do everything including park?
