i ski snowbird 15 days a year and looking to make this my 1 ski quiver. thoughts.?.?.? like to charge and make big turns when open but mainly hunt soft snow in the trees. at 5'9" and 170lbs should i get 179 or 186cm?
I would actually say go for the 186. I am 5'10" 150lbs and I would go for the 186. Its going to give you more of that hard charging big mountain ski feel. It will also help you more in the powder. Go bigger. It will make you an even better skier than you already are.
get 179. For a 170lb dude, 5' 9", the 179 will be the perfect length. If you like me, 215 lb, 6' then get the longer ones.
With 179 you get the best tree's performance, all the stability you need at high speed and ... it also will fit in your ski rack better.
