Default Help - which board to use this weekend

Okay, I've 2 boards and I'm trying to decide which to ride tomorrow.
I had each one hot waxed at the beginning of the season and have ridden each one 3 days.
One has a sintered base and the other is extruded. Which would be best to ride this weekend?

What Mountain are you going to and what are the conditions like? What are the other differences between the two boards?? We don't have ESP so might just tell you to ride one on each foot instead since we don't really have enough info to work off of.

For instance I rode those two different kind of bases yesterday but for two different applications due to differences in length, edge bevel, and different side cut and stiffness.

Fair enough. I'm not 100% sure what the conditions will be like. Probably hard packed. Maybe a little ice, maybe a little slushy during the day, not sure yet. It's Mt Lemmon (Ski Valley) in Tucson, AZ and I haven't been there in a long time so I don;t know what to expect.
The two boards are:
Sintered - 2009 Arbor Coda 158
Extruded - 2009 Rome Crail 159
I've lost a little weight since I bought both of these, so they're both probably a little too long for me, but it doesn't seem to cause any problems. In case anyone wants to know, I'm about 150 lbs. now.

Sintered - 2009 Arbor Coda 158 judging off of reviews on the two boards and looking at and the conditions on mountain that will be variable 20 to 40 degrees. I would probably go with the arbor. You might want to have a rub on wax handy just in case.
