I've skied downhill for 20 years, but I decided to pick up XC skiing after recently moving to Oregon. I picked up some of the Asnes surplus skis on the cheap as my first pair. Unfortunately, I think they're too long for me.
I'm 5'10 and between 140-150lbs, and I got the 200cm. This was the smallest size available, and they were so inexpensive I won't be really bummed if they don't work.
My question is, will they function at all for learning the basics? What am I giving up with this length, and is there a way to compensate for the length and still enjoy them?\

Hey, Mike! They are actually a little too short if they are meant for the classic technique. Using the old formula "body height x 1.15" for classic skis, you should have 204 cm skis. But 200 cm will probably be OK if the camber suits you. What are the widths of that ski (tip - waist - tail)?
