Park pickle is 25.5 for both the 156 and 159...Imho you want closer to 24 and not over 25 cm. Width becomes more noticable as you get tired or laxed...it will feel like you are driving a dump truck compared to agile sports car. If your resort is big wide groomers where you can just cruise verse a tight technical and dodging things/people, steeps or trees you want agility = narrowness. You can make anything work...my charlie slasher 164 is 26 cm and it floats like a dream in 3+ ft of pow and I can make it down any tracked and packed out double black but its not fun. Have you checked out Venture? And btw where are you riding, what snow conditions and terrain?....cause riding ice vs pow or even packed and vs wide open bowls/groomers verse tight technical coulier and trees.
