Not sure how much blunted tips take off the number from a "standard" board, but I'd say some of those numbers are short for a 180 pound guy. There's nothing scary about a 160+ cm board! In fact for pure fall line powder riding I'd want something significantly longer.

Again, I'm 160-170 and ride a 159 and toss it around in the trees where I have to be quick with my turns and speed checks. I'm looking at a 163 for all out charging at the slight sacrifice of spin mobility.
