Right about now people are seeming to think that riding a longer ski makes you better, for a while it wasn't like that, but now it's back to the 'Longer the Ski, Better the Skier' bullshit. I personally think it's shit. I have a 164cm right now, I'll be getting a 175cm soon, and I bet I could ski something much longer, but I don't... why? Because you the hell wants to ride some massive ski just because it stereotypes you as a better skier? Ride what you want, ignore the trendwhores and people looking for attention. If you can ski just the same on a 171 as a 160 as a 190, then go for it.
