Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

ski advice for heavyweight intermediate

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead

I'm looking to get hold of a pair of skis for the Other half. A 150 cm ski would be just under her eye level. However, modern sizing charts seem to go on weight and at 170lbs this would suggest a ski somewhat above head height.

She has no particular desire to ski fast, can ski parralel but is not really carving the turns. I don't think going for a ski much longer than 150 would be a good idea. However, with the weight I wondering if perhaps I should be looking for something a bit stiffer than most beginner/intermediate skis would offer. I guess some brands may tend to be better than others. Would it be better to opt for a mans or womens specific ski? Probably looking at second hand/last years colours.

Any thoughts/advice
