i am able to purchase some k-2 lotta luv skiis at wholesale. i want an all mountain ski w/ an emphasis on skiing bumps (my favorite terrain).
my quandry is choosing the length (156 or 167)?
i'm a 5'3" female, i ski down most any terrain (w/in reason)...double blacks for sure....and i love skiing changing terrian, bumps and powder (i'm average in the bumps but getting better - can hook a decent line together albeit blow out here and there)...
my last pair of k2 t-nine skis (4yrs old - now shot) were 156 cm and felt too short on cruisers...my phat luv powder skis are 167 cm (3 yrs old) and are fabulous on powder and cruisers (so stable and can really work up speed - love that).... overall i feel better on the 167 cm ski, but the ski sales guy recommended 156 for my basic profile (5'3", advanced skier, bump skiing interest...)
Question: would it be a mistake to get this wide k2 lotta luv ski in the 167 cm given my profile?
ty....i appreciate advice!
