So I'm looking for a deep pow, backcountry oriented ski that is fairly manageable for my skinny ass frame: 5'5, 120 lbs. I'm pretty aggressive on groomers but I've only been hitting heavy pow with narrow equipment thus far (2002 160cm 1080's) and it isn't cutting it. Would the 167 be a manageable size for me since this is a fairly light ski? Any other suggestions?

The 167 should be alright for you, and even the 174 if you are really pushing hard. I always like a longer ski, just for the stability, and the extra float. But for sure the 167 is manageable for you.
