What size skis should I buy?
I’m 5’6 (166cm), 128 lbs and I’m an advanced skier. I’m trying to decide between a pair of 164 and 172 Rossignol sky 7’s. Any advice is appreciated!
Really depends on you preference. I’m the exact same size and weight as you and I used to ride a pair of Al Dentes that we’re 169cm.
They worked but felt small so I sized up to 176 ON3P. Used them for two seasons and they’re pretty good feeling. Just got a pair of 181 Kartels though that are 106 underfoot and they feel good too, just more heavy than what I’m used to.
I also used a pair of 193cm skis once, wasn’t to bad l, but that’s when they started to big.
so really it just depends on your preference. I’d stick to the 170-180 range though
Thanks for the advice. I think I’m probably going to go with the 172.
Back when I was 5’6” I skied 143s
