Ski buying advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need some advice please. So I have snow skied my whole life going at least once every other year and yearly over the last 4 years. I would consider myself a strong intermediate and I can ski any blue trails as well as some blacks. I've always rented skis but I always have problems with my skis easily popping off on moguls and I also really want to start doing more in the terrain parks which is hard on rented equipment. I'm looking to buy used skis but my selection here in Texas is limited. I'm 5'9" and weigh 210 pounds with a stocky/stout build. I've found a pair of line blends but they are 183 cm. My questions are 1. Would these skis be too much for me and 2. Are they too long for me? I figure since I weigh more than the average 5'9" guy and the skis are early rise, that it wouldn't hurt to have longer skis? Any advice is welcome.

I think the next size down may be a better fit at your level of skiing.
