Ideal ski length for a 6'0 200 guy
Hey guys wondering the right ski length i want to get some bentchetlers but theyre in 178 and im not sure about the size but i also got 182 armada alpha x which are perfect a little bug for trees and 171 line blends which are kind of short so maybe 178 is perfect lmk guys thanks
It depends on the rocker, camber, what you're using them for, and overall preference. It also helps if you know what forum to put this in. Just sayin.

Benchetlers in 178 are going to be way to short at your weight/height assuming your a pretty solid skier.
I'm not 100% sure of the size but I would go with the 186 or whatever the size right around that is. I know they also have a 192 which might be a bit to big. But if you are a SOLID skier and charge that could be a good length
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
182 isnt too big for trees. Im slightly smaller than you and ski 185 blogs in trees all the time.
We need to know more about your ability though and what theyll be used for. But youll definitely wanna get the 185 or 192

200 pounds is big, I'd go 186+ on skis
Hey OP, I'm about the same height and weight as you (6'2 205lbs) and for park I rock 186cm ON3P Kartel 98s and for pow/all mountain shredding I rock 191cm ON3P Jeffrey 114s. As noted before, it all depends on the skis (camber/rocker/stiffness ect) that you end up riding to determine length. However, I would suggest to not go any lower on 185 for pow skis like the Bentchetlers.
