ski length help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just recently picked up a pair of volkl walls 169. Im about 5`7. Before i skied dynastar 162s. Im doing alot more park now, mostly park. I usually hit medium size jumps and rails. I was looking for a shorter ski i was original going to get the volkl ledges in 158. But these guys told me to go with the bigger ski for park. The walls are a but the shortest size is a 161. Im thinking about returning the 169s and pick up a pair of the 158' ledges, or is a longer ski better for park. Please help me. Thanks

Definitely stick with the 169's. You will be happier because they will be center mounted and will feel shorter because of that.

well someone corrct me if im wrong, but as far as i kno, the shorter the ski the more control you will have thus making a shorter ski better for the park

i would think i would have more moveabilty with the shorter skis being able to spin quicker. But yea longer skis will be more stable giving me a less chance of washing out on jumps. But im not at the level yet where im hitting the huge kickers. Im currently hitting the medium size jumps.

Keep the 169s. It is a better ski and there is probably only 2 or three inches difference in the skis. Won't be noticeable except for a slight weight difference.
