Default Some helpful advice on which board?

I ride mostly powder (when its there), side country and pistes. Im going to buy the Travis Rice board but do i go 157 or 161.5?

157 would be my usual choice but as its a blunt twin im worried there wont be enough float, and its a lot of money if i choose wrong.

Im 185 tall about 85kg and size 11 US boots.

"mostly powder" go with the 161. I'm 6-1, 185, size 11 and much prefer my 159 over my 156 in powder, even though the longer board is camber and the shorter continuous rocker. It'll give you more leeway for setting back your bindings and will make it easier for you to lean on the tail.
