    Calling all Lady Skiers!

    Hey! I'm doing some research about height and ski lengths, specific to females.


    If you could post up how tall you are, what skis you ride/own and their lengths, like below.


    5'6"
    Park/Everything - Faction Ambit - 164
    Park - Armada ARW - 164
    All Mountain - Salomon Mynx - 166


    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I'll help you out on behalf of my wife, who will not be visiting this forum any time soon. She is an intermediate skier who likes blue runs and single blacks, and somehow ends up on a few double blacks due to her inconsiderate (yet very patient and supportive) husband.

    5'4"
    All Mountain - Volkl Aura 156

    Cool- what is the research for? industry or school? just curious
    5'6" 145lbs
    4frnt EHP 179
    4frnt EHP 179 (yes I love this ski)
    Line Sir Francis Bacon 182 (I think the current models are 184's but mine is from a couple yrs ago)
    I use these for my everyday skis so I guess they would be considered all mountain

    Weight isn't important at all...

    I was wondering that too- seems fairly integral to the length decision.

    Excellent point - All you guys answering for your SOs, go ask them how much they weigh and report back. No guessing, this is for science!

    Icelantic Gypsy, 170 (I got these when I was skiing a shorter ski as my everyday ... thinking of bumping this up now that my everyday is longer than my powder ski ... )

    Yeah, weight matters. I am, as they say, short for my weight.
