You're borderline between the two sizes and could probably go either way depending on your typical ski terrain.
i've skied various sizes skis from 165 up to 185, but of course that was over the last 6-7 years and they all handle differently...i don't have much experience with all mountain twin tips...i've skied a friends PE's that are shorter than 170 and they were decent but too slow and chattery I expected taht at the length...but i've only seen good things about the bridges
its so tempting to go buy the 177 bridges today..unless there is some other suggestions...keep in mind i live in PA but i try to frequent out west and jay/killington/stowe etc in the north as much as I can...i know i know i'd love to get that gotamas but i feel like they're too fat for PA skiing and getting in the park however little i actually do that...of course if i lived in VT or out west those would be number one ski's without a doubt
