Right length for powder skis?
So I'm currently skiing some volkl karma's in 177 and I'm thinking about picking up a pair of powder skis for this season. Early season will probably be spent on the east coast but I'm planning to make it out west for two weeks or so. Right now I'm looking hard at the k2 ak enemy's, the volkl gotama's and the maybe the liberty helix's. Ive seen a few ak enemy's in 189 length but I'm wondering if that is gonna be too long for me since I'm only about 5'11 or so. Any advice would be helpful, I'd post over at TGR but they don't take kindly to noobs like myself.
what weight are you? I'm going to say 189 will be fine if you're a decent skier maybe not ideal in really tight trees but thats about it.
I'm only about 150lbs, i figure for the more open powder skiing it would be alright, im trying to decide if i should wait around for a slightly shorter pair to pop up.
189 should work
Someone left our freezer door cracked last night, and when I opened it this morning there was about a half inch of fluffy frost over everything. I collected it all and made a snowball, it made me happy. - Rowen
