Yea, I would stick with looking for a 157 if you are set on the TRice only because I've read on this forum it is super stiff and while I do suggest a longer board than snowklinger, I don't believe that longer is always better.
Again... I don't want to dissuade you too much from your original choice of a Salomon's Man's Board... because once you start chasing for the "perfect board" you are never going to stop. Trust me, I know from experience.
I already started chasing, and I'm overwhelmed looking @ boards from Libtech, Jones, Salomon, and my old fav Rossi...
edit: and the PROTOoooo
