How do you determine snow ski length?

a good general rule is to get skis that are about the same height as you are. The shorter they are, the more control you will have; the longer, the faster they are. If you are a beginner, go with some skis that are shorter than you. Note: this is assuming you are skiing shaped or parabolic skis (any new skis will be this type)

Is a parabola the same as a parabolic curve?

No. If you tilt a parabola, you will still have a parabolic curve but it will no longer be a parabola.

Difference between men's and women's alpine skis?

Women's skis have the waist and binding farther forward compared to men's skis to compensate for women's lower centers of gravity and added weight in the rear. Because of lower weights and lower centers of gravity, women's skis also tend to be more flexible for proper turning. Women's skis are also more dramatically curvy than men's skis to make the ski turn better. On straight skis, man or woman, the rule is, "as tall as you or slightly shorter if you're a beginner, a foot taller if you're advanced or just really good." Longer skis can be dangerous, so you need to know what you're doing. On modern shaped or parabolic skis, beginner skis are around chin-height while advanced skiers may have skis up to their forehead or as tall as the skier. Shorter skis are good for beginners as they give more control and better turning. Longer skis get more speed.

Do world cup skiers use the same skis as you buy?

Not unless you are a ski racer yourself, and were lucky enough to get top of the line equipment. World Cup skiers get the best race skis that their factory makes. They have many different pairs of the same type (downhill skis, for example) that they will test to see which are the fastest. Race skis are highly specialized and differ greatly from demo skis or skis that the public usually buys. You can see this reflected in the price. Race skis typically run $800-$1000 for the skis, not including bindings.
