go 171 I would say.. your a bit big for a 161 but don't quite have the weight for a 181, you could go 181 if your a pretty strong skiier and are planning on true centereing them.. but I would say 171 unless that is the case
^ pretty close to my size but i weigh a little more due to beer..
I would say 171 for park and 177-181 for pow and everything else. Tons of options, just make sure the skis flex well under less pressure.
Height has bearly anything to do with it......all depends how how much weight you can throw around. The stonger/heavyer you are, the longer ski you can handle.
If it is your first year skiing thought i would get in the 160-169 range no matter what size you are. These are great to teach you the basics....and the shorter skis are much lighter, and more manuverable. I still ski on my 169 1080s, and i am 6'1 185.
Matman10: Man lat you had that 7 down but you binder poped off
Laterails:Yeah i think they aren't adjusted, or it could be the fact that all that is holding them together is one of my pubes
