im your size and i ride 156s, but i think they might be smaller
if your good i would recommend something like mid 160s. i would think beginner twins would be good

twin tips are skis that the tip and back are both rounded up the same hight so you can ski switch (backwards) without having to worry about the back of your skis digging in.
