Gear Question

Write your question here...Hi. I am wondering what size you would recommend? I am 137 lbs, but that is without shoes and a small backpack etc. The 169 cm is rated for 120-150 lbs and the 179 is rated for 150-180lbs. I like the idea of the longer ski (the 179 cm) and am a competent skier. Or, should I stick with the 169cm? I will be skiing out of my house on moderate terrain (not track set), with a variety of conditions such as snowmobile tracks, fresh, deep snow, and trees.
Thanks for any advice you can lend.

I would stick with the 169. If you go to the 179 you'll likely end up slipping on most uphills.
