Unless you have giant feet, I think the 157 will be great, just don't expect it to float perfect on pow days.
No powder here at all on the ice coast. I am used to ice and more ice. I started my Sunday on a 162 TRS and then mid-day I went to a 159 Skate Banana and I couldn't really tell the difference. In fact the Skate Banana was more playful and still stable.
