samcleary29How much do you weigh?
samcleary29You should ski a shorter ski but if you really want them go ahead.
Swandog7Are you comfortable putting that length on your feet, and dealing with slightly more weight? Answer those questions, it will be slightly harder to control but if you are a good skier and can handle the swing weight and length go for it
1210020121I've never actually skied anything more than 153 so this will be wierd. I can do double black diamonds at my ski resort so I guess I am good enough.
Swandog7I went from 148s to 168s about a season and a half ago, I adjusted more to the weight than the length, Its more or less how well you can handle them and how they will effect spinning and stuff like that. You will find a longer ski to be way more stable, funner to ride imo, and more balanced out on rails
Jesse_longer skis also make you look cooler too imo
joseph.lewandowsI'm 6' riding the 171 chronic. Poor choice. If you're only 5'4 then anywhere between 171- 180 should be fine. Depends on your ability. If you really like the ski then go for it is all I can say.
