My wife is considering buying some new Volkl Auras but is unsure of what size would be best: 163cm or 156cm. She is 5'4" and 116lbs. She is currently skiing on 150cm Atomic SX:9's and is looking for something wider for trips to western resorts. She's a solid intermediate who is still working on her carving skils, but can ski most terrain without difficulty. She can ski steeps and bumps, but much prefers to just cruise at slower speeds. I'm thinking the 163cm will provide better float and may add stabilty that will enable her to be more confident in variable conditions. Any other opinions?
