New Setup please help

My stats 5'7 150lbs size 8 boot these stats will not change.
Im looking to pick up a 152-153cm
Be riding in Ontario (Blue Mountain and that region) with a trip or two to Tahoe nothing extreme just cruising the mountain.
I've already got Union Force Bindings
Was thinking of the following
Arbor Westmark
Ride Buckwild
NS Proto or Heritage

I'm open to suggestion

Heritage doesn't go smaller than a 155. Proto and Westmark are both good freestyle oriented all-mountain boards. How much of your time will be spent on park/groomers/powder?

Probably won't hit the park this season 70/30 groomers/pow
Boards listed above were just from friends....same friends telling me to go 148-150cm
Hence why I'm asking the community lol

I ride a Westmark here in Ontario too and I love the thing. I get the same ice/crap that you do and I find the Griptech holds onto ice and chewed hardpack as good as my Smokin's with mag and better than my Heritage did. I think for what you are looking for the Westmark would be a great choice.

I saw Westmark at Corbetts here in Barrie... maybe they might have it in their Oakville location? Prices are still super cheap since the last trade show in T.O... saw a lot of brand name boards and boots for retardely low prices
