Hi guys. I am in the market for a new pair of skis, and have been considering the K2 Kung Fujas'. I am 6' 160lbs and am an intermediate to advanced skier. I ride mostly blacks and blues on the east coast. But I am also making a few trips out west this year and will be looking to ride mostly powder/tree trails. I was wondering what length would best suit my needs, the 169cm or 179cm skis. Thanks for the help!

The 169 is going to offer better maneuverability in the trees, but you will sacrifice some stability at speed and flotation on the powder days. The 179 will offer more stability at speed and flotation in powder but will be a bit more effort to move in tight trees. I'm 6' and about 185lbs myself and would go with the 179. With a radius of 19m @ 179 and the all terrain rocker it should be pretty maneuverable for the time in the trees, but still offer the stability at speed and flotation on the deep(er) days.
