i have just read about 10 threads on ski size and all are differnt.Some say go about your height and some msay do for about ur nose level. I ski probably mostly park/pipe(70%) with the rest big mtn(10%) and a bit of groomers(20%). I am 180cm tall and 150lbs(70kg). I was thinking about a 169 fujative. 179 seems pretty long if im skiing it in the park and pipe as well as all mtn.
