More advice ... I am 47 so have been living with a tall body for 29 more years than you have ... anyway, don't feel bad about being tall! It is a great thing and some day you will appreciate it ... so you may as well start now. Look at Laird Hamilton (surfing) ... most surfers are tiny but Laird is big and he rides big waves. Sounds like what you are doing in the powder!
And, in case you don't know, the correct answer to the question "Do you play basketsball?" is "No, do you play miniature golf?"
