twin-tip length, specific
hey, i know there is lots of posts out there for this, but i just wanna make sure, and get some advice.
i am about 5'11', or 179cm
i want to get a pair of twin tips, but not for use in park only, i want to use them whole mountain (not powder really, just normal runs, and a bit of powder), as well as in the park.
my time will be spent about 35/65, mountain/park.
what length twin tips should i get (prob 1080's or whatever i can get cheap)
ive heard 181's, but they are i bit longer than i am tall, so im not too sure.
thanx for your time and help
Well i'm also 5'11' and my old skis where 188 but they were a little long for park. I say get anything between 170 and 180 and you will be fine, but if you really wanna be cool you could get some 133's.
Yea I want cheezy poofs
get the 177 teneightys, i am same height as you and they are perfect for skiing everywhere, especially in oz, though if you have the extra cash i would get pocket rockets
ok thanx mates
yeah....177 teneighty's or the 180 pockets....if you're super agressive and can get some power behind your skis...get the 185 pockets
get anything around your hight, like 175-185cm.

How many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
10, 1 to do it, and 9 to say 'I can do that.'

I use 177 1080's all over the mountain and they ski fine, the only thing they don't like to much is icy crap but not many skis do.
