What length should park skis be?
If you want something as versatile as can be we recommend a length between your height and 5cm under. If you want something that’s more park-oriented, prefer a shorter ski, 5 to 10cm under your height. Don’t go any shorter or you will lack stability which is not what you want when you’re landing a trick.

Yes, but only a little (we’ve had an 18 month old skiing with us many times – 4 of our kids learned to ski at age 1). What they can learn are things like balancing on skis and the earlier that you get them out on the snow, the more comfortable they will be with the idea later on.
What if my skis are too short?

What happens if skis are too long?
So if you’re looking at a ski that you plan to use in lots of fresh snow, you’ll get more float out of a longer length. Of course, the surface area gained by going with a longer length may be less important than the weight added to the ski or the decreased maneuverability, but it is a legitimate factor to consider.
Are short skis better for tricks?
Depends on personal preference; shorter planks will spin more easily while longer skis will provide a bit more stability on jump landings. … The little bit of rocker in the tip and tail helps with take offs on slushy jumps and makes the ski a little more fun without it feeling to soft on both ends.”
