I am moving to Mammoth in November from New Zealand. I am currently riding a 153.75 DC PLY. Which is sweet for me on groomers and park, which is all we pretty much have down here. Now Mammoth seems to be a different story with dozens of powder days per season. Do you think I need to get a bigger board for these days? I am 6ft and 78kg. Also how cheap comparably are boards in the USA, am I best to just wait until i am up there?
You are 172lbs so I definitely recommend a longer board than 153. A 157 T.Rice for example would be a blast out there.
