I currently ride and have always rode skis that are 180 in length but I always feel like theyre just too bulky and heavy for me. I'm about 5'9 160 and I'm considering downsizing to a mid to low 170 but i'm not sure if its the right choice. Anyone have any input?
It'll depend on the skis you're looking at. Any rocker in the tip and/or tail in going to make it ski a lot shorter and I'd recommend staying around 180 or things are going to get squirrelly. Full camber you might be able size down a bit. Is demoing an option?
