The fact is, ski lengths are getting shorter. Agressive male skiers weighing 180-200lb. are now skiing on 160-170's. Take a look at the ski lengths in the reviews this year. You will find the men testing skis in lengths on average at 160-175 and woment from an average of 150-165. This suggests that even 167 is probably a bit long by recent standards. (Skis are much improved in the last few years). She would do fine on a 160 and maybe even better on something a bit shorter. Try a demo. Most shops will take the price of a demo off the price of the ski; then you or more correctly, she, will know for sure.
