Skis too short???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
I'm 15 years old, about 6'1" and weigh about 145 lbs. I currently have a pair of '04 B2 Bandits in size 176cm. I have been skiing for 11 years and prefer mostly off-piste, pow, and and other steep stuff. I can't see myself growing a heck of a lot taller, but I may gain a little weight.

Are my skis long enough??

Any comments would be fully appreciated. thanks.

For now yeah you're fine. When you break the 165 mark you might want to start looking for a longer ski, but that should do you for now. Enjoy short skis while you're still light enough and not strong enough to over power them. A 182 (thats the next step up, right) at this point in your life is WAY too much ski... unless you're hitting FIS races anytime soon... but I don't think that it typically done on B2's.

thanks for the feedback,
I was hoping someone would say that because I don't really have the money to change skis any time soon.
