Ski length based on size etc...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I got 2 friend who are a bit interested in trying out skiing this season, now the thing is both are a bit above average in certain departments and im not sure what length skis would be best for them as beginners.

 

1st friend is around 90kg and 200cm tall, lean but very tall.

2nd friend is around 120-130kg and 180cm tall, so quite big.

shoulder high for real beginners, otherwise, about chin to nose high.

What about my 2nd buddy, does it matter that he is so overweight? Or is it still good to get him about shoulder high?

no, but the ski should be matched to his weight. he would probably overpower the average rental beginner/intermediate ski. talk to the vendor. hopefully, he can try several types to find the right match.
