Default What board?

Im going up to aspen and probably going to stay on Snowmass then the highlands bowl for some powder *fingers crossed* in january and am thinking about getting a new board. the board i have right now is a Lib Tech Skate Banana 145. I think Marvin did pretty well with this board so i think i will get another Marvin Board, unless there is a better one that you like. I weigh 110 in shorts/ tee shirt, 5'5" and a us size 9 1/2 foot. I ride about 60% looking for powder and 40% in the park doing about 30 to 40 jumps.
The boards Im looking at right now are
the t.rice 153 Hp
the tsr 148 N
and the Venture zypher 150
and also either the signal og or the omni
Any Help is appreciated

If you like to hard charge the mountain go with the hp T.rice. If its good enough for the man himself, its good enough for you.

You already own a box scratcher twin. Add a second board that kills everything the box scratcher WON'T. Instead of the T.Rice maybe consider the Jamie Lynn.

I have a 2012 157 T. Rice HP Pro, and you definitely won't regret it if you decide to get the 153 T. Rice HP Pro. For your weight and with the C2 profile it will be still enough that you won't have any problem getting it to float in powder, and this board is made for getting big air.

You should be fine with a 9 1/2 boot for the 153/157 T. Rice. The TRS has a 253mm waist width and the T. Rice 153/157 has a 258mm waist width, the slightly wider waist width is just going to make carving easier and make the board float a little because of the larger surface area. If you are really worried then go with the TRS, but I think that you would be just fine with the T. Rice.

I have to agree with him somewhat. If you don't decide to go with the T. Rice, than I'd also recommend checking out the Jamie Lynn or the Lando Pheonix, and the only difference between the 2 boards is the Lando has a riser plate under where the bindings are which makes turn initiation slightly easier.
