WizerdIt really all depend on your riding style, just like everything else, but if you're a beginner, I'd recommend the 171's because I bought Solomon Threats in 171 when I was like 5'7" and now I'm 5'10" and I'm still throwing them around. I wouldn't get the 161's because they're going to be too small. 171 or 176 depending on if you want to be able to go faster and have a bit bigger skis (176) or have good size skis that you'll be able to throw around more (171). Personally I'd say get the 171's.
Eastern.SkierI'm 5'11 and I got size 178, if you like a bigger ski go 176. If you want a smaller ski go 171, it's all about preference but don't go 161 or 181.
