length

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all;

I'm soliciting opinions on length for a new ski. The ski is a Blizzard Mag 7.6, 2011, (no rocker). I'm 65, 5'8", 165 lbs, and a very good skier, (no bumps anymore). The Blizzard site recommends 165, (the ski is available in 157, 163 and 170). I'll be using it strictly in the East. I have a pair od Atomic Blackeye Ti's that are ~165 and have always felt I should have gone to 170. My "western" skis are 170.

 

Opinions on a length for this particular ski?

Hi - What's your weight, and go you ski everything (such as off into the trees) or primarily groomers?

FWIW, I'm 56, 5'8", 175 and skied the 8.1 (not 7.6) in 170.  It felt perfect for me.

If you mean the Blizzard magnum 7.6, then go 170 or maybe 177 if you stick to open spaces and higher speeds and it's not too icy.  165 is a good length for a SL ski for you, but too short for an all-rounder.
