i just started skiing this season (i am 24years old, 5'10~5'11 and around 165lbs).
first time i tried this sports i fell in love and been going every weekend =)
ive gone only 7 times and i am in love!!! seems like im picking up this sports pretty well.
renting gear is starting to add up so ive decided to get my own skis.
got an email from my gf yesterday saying she ordered this ski ive been looking at online.
2008 k2 apache sabre with binding for $249 shipped.
now... what im kind of worrying is the size of the ski she got me.... she got me 160cm...
when i first went to go rent(first time ever on skis) they gave me k2 146cm skis.... so ive pretty much learned my basics with 146cm skis.
last weekend when i went to go rent they gave me 153cm... i tried and i felt comfortable.
will 160cm be ok for me? i am beginner and i feel very comfortable on green and follow my friends to blue here and there(more challenging, but way more exciting!!).
went to local ski shop to check out different model k2 ski in 160cm and they come up to my nose.
hope i provided enough informations for you guys and gals to figure out if this ski size would work for me.
thanks for reading!!!
