whatever you feel comfortable on
depends on your agressiveness....if i skied something lower than my eyes, i'd fall over my tips in the steep pow stuff....and i can ski on skis over my head, but still throw stuff in the park, so i use a longer ski...some people like shorter ones...go anwhere from the top of your head (maybe 5 cm over) to your chin....just get what you like (i'm 6'1 and i'm on 185's and 190's)
really guys just think about it, its not that hard to figure out, usually skis that are just as tall as you work fine.

i think that you should look at what ski you want, then decide the sizes available, not the other way round. like if you walk in and say i want a ski that is 178 cm they will bring out skis that are 178cm, if you wakl in and ask for a ski that goes in the pipe and park pretty well but is really good in the powder you will find you have a far bigger option with sizes that are more suited to you.
it all depends on what you're skiing, park only the 6'2 guy can probably get along w/ a 178 but he'll die when there is any powder

Ski length is important to staying alive in powder but weight is the most important factor for choosing the right length to ski both powder and park. eg: someone 5'11 and weighs 140 could easily ride a 160 lenght ski in powder
schlonginator..are you kidding me???? how fat of a ski are you talking about...i'd go to initiate my first turn and fall over the tips, unless they're like the atomic deep-powder skis (118 or something rediculous like that in the waist) those things wouldnt float with that person...i'm over 6', and 150 and ski 185's....they are purfect in powder (pocketrockets if you couldnt guess, so they're pretty fat as well)
