Well- I just found out that my husband bought me the Blizzard Viva 810's in 153 length as a birthday gift. I guess they were supposed to be a surprise, but he accidentally spilled the beans! I hope they will not be too short. After reading all the comments, I was leaning toward buying myself 160 length, but he beat me to it. I'm sure they will be a huge step up from the skis I was renting, anyway. We will see! Btw, not sure if it makes a significant difference, but I was off on my weight- haven't weighed myself in years, and I am much lighter than I was estimating, actually 5'6" and not 135, but 118 lbs, so maybe the shorter skis will actually be appropriate?
My wife is 5' 4", 120, and she skis a 158. You might ask your husband to swap.
