At least it seems to have morphed into a less incensed "here's my favorite short ski" thread. That's OK, it's interesting to see versatility on the slopes; in equipment and technique.

 

Each to their own.

 

Yep.  All I've learned from these kinds of threads is width, length, and technique are all dependent on the individual skier and their preferences, skill level, and style.  You can make generalizations about a lot of this stuff but it really boils down to the skier.

This is a fact.

Of course there are a number of factors involved and length is one of them, the same ski can ski so different depending upon it's length.

I tend due to my size to get the longest skis they make, this fits my needs and ability, and may not fit yours.
