i am 5' 11" weighing 175 pounds. I ski mostly northeast, so obviously a lot of groomers and packed powder ona good day. Love moguls and glades. I'm trying to decide between a 165 cm ski or 158 cm ski because I generally like shorter skis to be able to maneuver the trees more. Will I be too heavy for a 158 ? Thanks..

Welcome to Epic! I just picked up a pair of 165 Flites for my wife and she's quite a bit smaller and skis tele. I got them because they're light and forgiving and good at moderate speeds and will perform in powder when called on... (She skis perfect ski school medium radius turns on groomers pretty much all the time). Unless you need a more forgiving, lighter ski, I'd go with the Prophet 90 in the 175 range. Same ski, just beefier and more versatile (faster, more stable). They're on sale now for just a few dollars over the Flite. Ive skied the Prophet 100 and found it an easy turning fun ski and good powder performer but not much good on ice... (I noticed your location...) I'd think more Volkle-ish if I was out there...
