When you say park, do you mean rails and boxes or jumps and pipe or everything?

Oh, and the hero may be too soft a board for what you're looking for.

i think i might be a good comparison for you. for this season i am getting a neversummer revolver-r (a wide board). make sure you go wide, and not too stiff. it sounds like you are right between 156 and 159, so you can go either way. you should go to the shop and check out both sizes before you buy.

You must spend all your time at Snoqualmie. There is definitely pow and good snow to be found if you know where to go. Get out of the park and onto the mountain, you may be pleasantly surprised. And as suggested above, look into a wide or at least a mid-wide.

it takes just about the same amount of time to get to stevens as it does crystal and baker is way further than both
also, they are predicting a good season this year, so there should be plenty of pow
