I have hundreds of days at Breck on 66mm... but that was then and this is now.

If it were me, I'd likely take a pair of my either 80 or 85mm underfoot. Consider:

It is January. No sun crust. Maybe windpack. You don't expect much new snow. Any snow you do get will be very (did I say very?) light. As in you don't even care it's there light. As in say goodbye to your tips light.

Likely you will ski more soft pushed piles crud skiing than anything else, followed by packed out soft.

So given your choices, if it were me, I'd pack for bumps and crud. (Unless you're doing some hike-to terrain) You know your favorite ski in those conditions by now, right?
