After a few years of skiing recreationally, I've finally decided to purchase a set of skis. I've read the FAQ regarding ski sizing on this forum, and it states that the length of the ski is determined by my height. However, I've also read contradictory information online that specifies that shaped ski length is actually determined by the weight and skill level of an individual.
Can someone please clarify this?
FYI: I'm 5'6", 140 lbs, athletic, i can ski blues fine, some blacks fine (working on the moguls).
