i would say 176 im like 511 140 and thats what i ride. 176 sounds long but when they are mounted it feels so much shorter, but like nomensteven said if you're just starting out it might be a bit big, but if you're not defintely go 176
If you ski Attitash message me to join the sweetest crew in the world.
