Ski length: 205 centimeters

The length of the ski is often chosen based on skill. You can choose longer or shorter skis than the recommendations. A general rule is that a longer ski becomes more stable at speed while a shorter ski becomes more maneuverable and gives sharper turns. You can go up in ski length if you like the high speed with big turns. A shorter ski will be a better choice if you would instead appreciate short turns and thrive best at moderate speeds.
