Ski legnth?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Look to get a new pair of skis and I can't decide what legnth to get. The skis that I'm getting are avaiable in a 162 and 170. I'm 22 5'6" around 200lbs and ski mostly groomers becuase i live in ohio, but do occasionally venture to other places around here all with out much powder and pretty much the same. I've been told to get the 162s and I've been told to get the 170s. I have a pair of 168s now and feel they might be a bit too long for some things. I like to ski mostly quick turns, but sometimes I like to kick it up a notch and just go fast.

 

My question for you is 162s or 170s? and Why?

 

thanks in advance.

have you had a chance to try both sizes? It is very subjective, if you like quick turns, I would go for the 162's especially since the 168s feel long.

What is the turn radius on the 162 vs 170?
