For Ontario hardpack I felt a world of difference going to a stiffer, longer, cambered board. But Vermont and Utah should have some powder for you to play in...
One other board to consider:
Völkl International | Snowboards | *Yavana
It's available in a 146 but unfortunately I haven't found any reviews for it with just a quick search.
My last piece of advice is to not be scared to go a little longer. If you're freeriding almost all the time, you shouldn't notice any real negative effects to a longer board, but your high speed stability will really improve.
lol no I don't look quite like that. I just think whales are cool. The animal kind at least.
Like Ryerson university? I don't go there, so no I guess? lol
And yeah, the only board I'm not sure about size for is the Rome Gold - I was thinking the 147, but according to their size chart I'm at the 151 ... which seems big, especially for the glades. But stability is also important. Thanks for the tip!
