A friend recently picked me up a pair of skis on sale that are 183cm Scott Mission (130-90-115). I am about 6'7 and 240 pounds. I have not owned a pair of skis before but I feel like I usually rent out longer skis as I ask for advanced type and ski up to double blacks. The 183s are a little higher than my nose when standing barefoot. Should I stick with these skis or look for a 195cm pair that will probably cost me 2-3x more than the *sale priced* 183s?
I don't want to be a giant skiing down on toothpicks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
