Thread Starter 
I am 26 years old, 6'3 tall, and I weigh 170 lbs ... Going to Colorado in two weeks for skiing. What lenth and what kind of skis do I need to buy? It will be my first time skiing.

Thanks

I would say don't buy any, instead rent your gear if it's your first time out.

However, if you are really set on buying something go to a ski shop where someone can answer a first time skier's questions.

Like others said, Rent the gear.

Buy in this order.
Good Gloves, Real Good Ski Socks and Base Layer.  good Googles.  Anyway You could spent 200$ to 1000$  from the Skin out, on a good ski outfit that would make the learning experience MUCH More Comfortable.  and when not on skis you will look the part and blend in.
