I recently received a pair of skis and boots from a good friend as a gift. As i'm reading through different articles/posts/websites on the correct ski length, I noticed that the ones I received are too long.
I am 5'10 and 130 lbs. I know i'm tall and skinny .. The ski length is 170cm and from what I'm reading, it should be around 155cm-165 depending on my ability to ski. I am a beginner and I have only skied a few times before. The problem is, we cant return it because I already used it once and there are scratches on it. I am still doing research on skis and everything about it.
I am mainly here to ask for advice and tips on what to do with a ski length that is longer than me based on my ability. Other than buying a new pair :). We are kind of on a tight budget.
Thank you everyone in advanced!
