172 cms. I have the bacons and love them for EC. If you want a playful park ski, the lizzie is great pretty much regardless of size. Not the ski to win slope or pipe comps per se, but very fun. However, I would be careful getting them for trees. Yes they are surprisingly agile, but at 6', you'll bbe much taller than them. despite the big waist, they are designed for hardpack, so have a low tip and tail rise (floatation problems maybe), they might chatter at speed given their very soft flex and length.
Conclusion- IMO, a great one ski quiver for smaller rippers, and still a buttery park ski for the bigger dudes, but don't expect these to float for a 220 lb. guy.
The Bacon and Elizabeth make excellent East Coast skis. I usually ski the EP Pro, but I have plenty of friends that I put on Lizzy's and Bacon's as an everday East Coast Ski. I still love taking out my "lady" Elizabeth's every once in a while to play in tight tress where the EP is too long for. Eliabeth's have an amazing sidecut thanks to Pollard and designing his skis like they are snowboards. As for the ski being too wide I have no idea why someone would say a ski that is only 110mm in the waist is too wide... I have not owned a ski under 110mm for 3 years now and I live on the East Coast.
