Ski sizeing question
I'm wondering what size of ski to get.
I weigh 125, I'm 5'11" tall, and I'm an expert skier.
I've already purchased 181 Salomon suspects but are they too big?
I've researched a lot online but the results aren't consistent. So I wanna here from you guys! What's a good size?

u r pretty light for 5'11, and the suspects are a fairly stiff ski so they will be harder to play around in, but if you are an expert skier you should be fine. id say 181 is ideal for you, the 176 size might make it a little easier to learn tricks (you will be able to spin faster) but if you already know what your doing the 181s definitely be more fun, you will perform better and will give you that extra steeez in shots (more ski area for more stomped landing and longer presses and such).
if you area good skier and can handle it youll be fine. As mentioned a full cambered ski would be more ideal to be around 178, but rocker skis I always give a few extra cm. Honestly I dislike full camber skis as i dont feel the energy from them or versatility. Also i ski in the Midwest so basically more rail gardens than actual parks so its just my preference
