Thanks man. Also good catch on the web flash fuck up. Ha. Just told our web dudes to hop on it.
WIth your height, 179 would probably work just fine, especially in the more dense NW snowpack. One thing I did to mine that I think helps is I completely dulled my tips and tails with a file but kept the edges regular underfoot for edge hold. I feel dulling the tips and tails makes the ski even that much more buttery or smooth when slashing turns on them. And you still have a substantial effective edge for carving on them. Hit me up if you have any other questions on them.
