Default Help w/ Board Size?

I am trying to figure out what size board I should get. I am 175lbs and 5'10". This will be my first board and it will probably stay on groomed trails its whole life. I am a beginner snowbaorder at 30 years of age who will be trying to keep up with my 6 year old as long as he can.

I was thinking 156 to 158. Do you think that 156 would be too small? Or, would I be better off with the smaller board?

Also, the 3 boards that I have narrowed it down to are:

Salomon Pulse 156 @ $125
Option Logic 157 @ $140
Palmer P-Line 158 @ $150

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
