I am an intermediate skier. Weight: 210lb Height: 185CM. I am using a pair of 170CM Atomic R9 right now. When I run down from a steeped slope with lots of short turns, it's still very hard to slow down to the speed I want even though I spend a lot of power.

1. Is the 170CM Atomic R9 suitable for me?
2. Are longer skis or shorter skis easier to slow down?
