I was looking at the REI site at skis and clicked on sizing chart. I have always been told that with the shaped skis, the ski should be between your chin and your nose. The REI site's size charts that breaks out sizes by ski are much longer than this. Two charts have been shown below.
I am 5'11" and 195 (on a good day) and currently ski 167 cm skis. The charts put me at as high as 184 CM. I called REI and spoke to the guy that handles the ski department and was told that these size charts are all from the ski manufacturers. And so, are my skis too short?
