I am 5'4" and 130 lbs, considering those skis. What lengths for me ?

I am 5'11" @ 155#s, 8+ or 9 level skier, and ski the XXLs in a 170. I like to ski very fast; frequently at Sun Valley(very fast) and Alta(varied packed and crud) and find my 170s perform very well in a variety of conditions. I have skied the 178s and like them a lot but for my home mountain the 170s are fine. For your size I would recommend going no longer than the 162s. These skis are very stable and do not "fight back." (For an "obscure reference," I worked in the ski business for 20+ years and have dealt with a lot of skis and skiers.)
