Description: K2 Sidekick Skis - Womens
The SideKick is an all-mountain ski with powder capabilities. This ski contains all of K2's renowned quirks although unlike other skis in their Adventure line, the All-Rocker-Terrain is a little bit subdued which allows for more versatility that increases the agility while still accomplishing a sick float on the powder. This women's ski is based off of the men's SideStash but through testing, it was found that women didn't like the metal in the ski. The removal of this material creates a much lighter ski that women will fall in love with.

Have fun out there and let it snow!
Is this a good ski for me and what is the recommended length?
Also, can you recommend a good binding?
Sounds like you need a ski with a great rocker-camber profile with a wide but versatile waist width.
The Sidekick at 167cm is a great option for you.
Also, check out The Rossignol Savory 7 in the 170cm. http://www.the-house.com/8962rosav7w15zz-rossignol-skis.html
Both lengths are a little taller than you but they ski shorter on the groom and the added length will greatly improve your flotation in the deep.
Here are some binding options:
Let me know if I can help any furhter. Have fun out there!
