I'm buying this year's ARV 96's and i'm getting them in 170 or 177. I'm 172 (5'8) tall. My previous skis were 2016 AR 7's in 176, but they were too stiff and not very playful. I'm afraid that the 177 might be too long as the skis are also wider than my previous skis. I'm also afraid that 170 is too short and not as stable. I ski 90% park and I want little wider skis so ARV 86's are not an option.
Thanks in advance.
