how much do you weigh, where do you ski...how old are you, are you still growing, what's your ski level.
i weigh 125, im 16, i mostly ski park, i think im almost done growing
Personally I think you'd be good on something like a 170. Even that 164 or whatever's not bad. Most of the people around me have a quiver of skis. Guys your size will ride 163 or so in the park and 170 or 173 out of the park. But a good one ski quiver for you would be something like the 1080 171 (just for example).
My .02 cents
yeah it really depends on a lot more factors than just your hight. but if you are still growing then looking in the mid 170s is a place to start.

why would you ride skis when skiboards are selling like hotcakes on national pancake day
