My friend who hasn't skied more than 3 times before, wants to start skiing now. He is 6'1'' and weighs 165-170lbs. So I guess you could say hes a beginner but I think he would be able to learn pretty fast. We found a pair of Line Chronics on craigslist for a good price with bindings with an asking price of $140. But the size of the Chronics are 167, so I was thinking that these might be just a little too short for him. I do not think they are center mounted. So my question is could he use these skis without any problem? And another question would be whats a good size ski for him. Thanks in advance.
