gayprinkid say 160-170, if youre really comfortable on skis go with the higher end so closer to 170 if you arent as good and youre learning go for lower size.
soupcan163 forsure. 170 cm is like 12 cm taller than you which would be 100% overkill for a park ski even if you are hitting 60-80 foot booters or unless you weigh 200 lbs. it will be a lot easier to progress and stuff on shorter skis cause they are easier to throw around. Honestly park skis should be within 5 cm of your height on either side unless you are exceptionally light or heavy.
As far as inexpensive recommendations line tigersnakes are both pretty soft and pretty cheap but they are a more entry level park ski. Chronics are another good option little beefier and a bit higher quality while still being within a reasonable price. Those are just the first to that come to mind.
milk_manJust get skis that are as tall as you. That's what I do, and it seems to work well. Otherwise skis that are just barely taller than you. I'm about 5'10" so I ride 174
jjdsteezewhat skis are taller than you at 174 when you are 5 10?
milk_manThey aren't taller than me. They're pretty much exactly my height, Domains
