I think I made a mistake while buying a new pair of skis

Hey guys, I have one question that keeps bugging me. few days ago I bought K2 lotta luvs without demoing, they were almost sold out so I bought 156 cm size. I'm 5'9 and I'm not an expert skier, I can say I'm somewhere in the middle of an intermediate to advanced skier, the last ski I rode was Volkl attiva star, which was of the same size, but it felt unstable sometimes, but I thought this ski would be different, since they are way wider and stuff. When I hold it upright it touches my chin. Did I make a mistake? This is the ski I wanted for a long time . another thing that keeps bugging me is that this ski has a rocker tip, so it should be a bit longer, or maybe it doesn't matter? Will I be able to ski in a powder? I forgot to mention my weight, I'm 65 kg, 143 pounds.

yes……they are too short for you. Beginner always feel that shorter skis are much easier to turn, but they are unstable when you start to ski fast. And if you choose a wide ski, you need buy a bit longer than normal groomer ski.

Maybe you don't want to go fast? Then stability isn't such a problem.
I thought the Lotta Luvs were unresponsive, but you may love them. Of course, it's easier to sell them UNused than used! Maybe the store would even take them back?
