I'm only 5'5 and can ski on anything, but sometimes it's nice to have a ski that you can throw around and really work turns with. Especially if you are just learning, you should be on a lighter ski.
Next yeárs Dynastars are wicked sweet, with awesome graphics and good all around. Salomon had some sweet shit too, as well as Atomic. Depending on where you ski (for ex. Ontario, you probably would want just a straight park ski, whereas in BC, you might want a fatter twin, such as the Stomps or Pocket Rocket).
The Head Mad Trix are also pretty sick but took a bit longer to get used to (I'm thinking the bindings were set too far back on my demo pair)....but also a good all round ski.
