I know. I know. But I really welcome the opinions. Me 40 years old. 5'10, 215 lbs. VERY strong (600lb squat). In my younger days I was a great skier that skied everything possible. As I've gotten older I don't take as many risks but still enjoy most on and off piste runs. I live and ski in Michigan most of the time but I own a condo in Whistler and usually spend at least a couple of weeks there a year. For the past 10 years I have rented skis every time I go west. I am a true 50 - 50 skier so an all mountain ski has been best for me so far. This past season I skied a Volkl AC3 and AC4 in 170. They did not have anything longer. I really enjoyed the both skis in that length and have decided to purchase the AC30 to ski here in MI. I want to take my skis "out west" but I will rent if the snow conditions warrant something different. My questions are "Should I go with the 177 or will that be too long for me" "Is height a better factor to determine ski length or is it weight" Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
