Hey man I grew up skiing at Wolf Creek, so know the terrain well. After skiing there for years and up at Crested Butte during college, I would say go with a bigger ski like the Deathwish 184. WC is the perfect place for training on a bit longer and wider ski, as the snow stays pretty soft, especially hiking the knife ridges or dog chutes. The other skis you mentioned are good, but unless it hasn't snowed in weeks probably too charge heavy for wolf creek. I'm 6' 180 and ski the bibby pro's in a 190 at WC and CB and love them especially for getting into the backcountry. Moment just makes great skis.

If you have not tried out carbon wheelsets, this is your chance for sure. Much less expensive than the Enve or Easton carbon wheelsets, and granted they weigh more but are still lighter than nearly all AM wheelsets out there.

The hubs are rebranded DT Swiss 240 hubs, so you know those are great and easy to service. Super stiff and strong wheels, your immediate engagement and acceleration are noticeable. The extra stiffness in the rims helps noticeably whenever you get up to speed. Well worth it, especially since backcountry gives you their return policy. Ran mine all last season and have never been happier even after my Chris King/ZTR flow rims.
