I know this question has probably been asked hundreds of times but I just wanted to get some others advice before I make my final decision. I am trying to decide which ski would suite me best and I am about to pull the trigger on some 179 Line Prophet 100s. However I am having a tough time on deciding between the 186 or 179, I don't want to end up realizing I need bigger skis halfway through the season. I started skiing last year after serving in the Marine Corps for four years. I picked it up very quick and would say I am a strong intermediate. I am 6'1" 180 lbs. I like to ski all over the mountain (no park), places I ski are Loveland, A-Basin, and Steamboat. Basically I just need to know what size I should get and why. Thanks for any input.
