Are you going to grow anymore? Is this your only ski (all mountain). If yes, do 181. Personally, I like my park skis a bit shorter, so I'm both taller and heavier than you and have 171. This is in part b/c I can't afford much else, but hey. So yeah, depends on what you like. Personally, I'd do 181 if it was my only ski
seeing as you are 170 pounds i would go with the 181's. they wont be too big for you especially if you are going to be mounting more foward than a traditional ski. im on 179s and im 5'10 and 150 and personally i would ski on nothing shorter than 175 for actual skiing
Yeah it is. Like I said, the longest skis I had actually "skied" on were 171, and the jump to 185 wasn't bad at all for regular skiing. I found it more difficult to switch up and stuff in the park, but I haven't hit jumps yet. I was also on heavier, wider skis (98 waist) so that might explain that. I would go with 174 because it will be longer and you've done fine on 166. Forget what my first post said, I changed my mind
