Jones mountain twin 2013

Hi

I'm 5-11, 140 lbs, size 11.5 boots and still growing a little bit. I am looking for a board that performs well on groomers, carving, trees, and powder for an intermediate rider. Pretty sure that the 2013 Jones mountain twin fits this bill.
What size board should I be looking for? I was thinking either the 157 or 158w.
Also, are there any upgrades in the 2014 Mountain Twin from the 2013 Mountain Twin?

Thanks!

I'm 165 lbs with size 12 boots and tried the 158w for a couple of days.
For east coast hardpack and ice, I didn't like it. It felt way too loose.

The magnetraction on the Jones is beyond mellow. I don't know why they bothered. It couldn't hold an edge on a frosted hill of beans.
I rode a Blacklist on the same days as the Jones and the griptech held much better on icy trails.

Here's a review, he rode the Jones in a wider variety of conditions. The only thing I disagree with is what he says about the flex. The tail is definitely stiffer than the nose:

I have a carbon credit that I could use for the real icy days, but even in AZ I dont think that ice will be that much of an issue. Not really looking into freestyle type boards.

Another point to keep in mind is that the 2013 and 2014 models both have extended camber sections compared to previous years, which I believe improved stability based off of reviews. I don't have any personal experience with this board but I was also considering it before I found a great deal on another board.
