175 is too small for you, IMO. You're a pretty big boy, I'd go with the 181 as a min., up to around 190 in the following models;

Salomon Hot Pilot 185

K2 Apache Recon 181 (Formerly Axis XP), or the next size up.

Rossi B2

Elan Mantis 662/666

If I could find a good deal on the Elan's, I'd buy them today. Chances are I'll be on the K2's this season. Either ski will take you anywhere you need to go.
