Default What size skis do I need?

Hi, I'm a 40 year old guy, 6'2", 180 lbs, who wants to get back into downhill skiing, and am looking for cheap used gear. I skied a lot as a kid but stopped when I left home for college. Back in the old days, we had straight skis with very little side cut, and I had a pair of 190cm (or thereabouts, it was a long time ago). I've used parabolic cuts once, and loved them, so that's what I want to buy. I understand that you usually get them in a shorter size. What length should I look for?

There's a pair of decent-looking Atomic 176cms on Craigslist right now that I'm interested in.

Advice and suggestions welcome. Thanks!
