The boards are pretty nice, a little pricey though. I would say 156 for park and 159 for all-mountain.

AM = All Mountain. Park is part of the mountain.

okay well im getting conflicting information. the skate bananas say they usually run 3cm shorter, so maybe i should just go with the 156? what do you guys all think? i dont want the board to be too short that i cant go down the whole mountain. thanks
