I am planning to spend a season in Whistler, BC next year and need new skis. I would like to buy them around this time, due to sales, etc. However the ski that I would be most interested in getting would be the 2016 LINE Blend.
My dilemma is that the retailer (its in Canada) where I would like to buy the skis only offers the 171 cm length (I am 180 cm tall, weigh around 66 kg and am a Type II skier and would most likely ski groomers with the occasional pow or park run), and having read a few articles and posts about how to choose the right length, I do not know whether purchasing the ski in this particular length would be the right option for me.
P.S. I would be happy if you could also recommend other all-purpose skis.
Thank you in advance.
