Honestly, I don't know. It probably depends on how aggressive you are. I would say if you are advancing in ability, then it should be ok. If you are at your limit in ability and take it easy, I would say it's not the right ski. It could be a ski to grow in to. There is a fair amount of rocker so that effectively shortens the ski. Aside from injury, one other reason I'm selling is because I think they may be too short for me. I'm 6', 195# and advance skier. The ski I use now for powder is a 193 Nordica Helldorado and that is perfect for me as well as a 193 Nordica Capo. I leave those skis in my Mammoth condo and wanted another ski to stay at home with me. My everyday ski is a 190 Rossi E100, but that being said, I also use a Rossi Hero ST in a 176 and Hero LT in a 185.
My personal opinion is that weight and ability matter most in sizing skis. The skis don't know how tall you are.
Don't know if I helped you or confused you more.
