everyones saying 178s, but i think im going with the 171s. if you dont do many jumps than why do you need the stability of a longer ski? the shortness of the ski will help you whip those 270s on/off MUCH easier, and its not like he'll outgrow them in a year. i skied on 169s when i was 6' and they worked for me. and besides, if you do outgrow them its not like someone on here wont buy them. so i say be comfortable and go with the 171s.
