At 5'11" 175 who skis upright too much and any terrain that doesn't involve manditory air any recommendations between the 175 and 184?
Probably a bit overkill for AZ. I think if you are generally skiing more soft days than hard, say in a place like CO, 107 is a great width. We're definitely more hard than soft here. For AZ, my daily driver skis are 90-100mm. I got fatter sticks for those one or two days a year they are really warranted here and I take them on all my CO trips.
K2 Rictor XTi 90, Rossi Sin 7, Rossi E100, K2 Pinnacle 95, Nordica Enforcer are all good considerations for 90-100mm AZ skis.
Those 107s are hard to beat for the price though, if you expect to ski pow at all might be worth snagging a pair. You could always fill in your quiver with 90-100 mm skis later on if you see the need.
