2. Size wise I could go a little smaller or a little bigger without much change. Since my main mountain is MTHigh/Bear I will probably go a little smaller 156-160. For those bigger mountain pow days I think my 163 will allow me to float well or could still use the new board.

Since I think my current board will be able to handle the deep pow days I think I will probably go for a park board. This way I can get better on jumps and boxes (still too afraid to hit rails ).

I am hoping to spend, if i can find a good one, around $250 for a board from last year.

What do you guys think of Lib Tech Skate Banana 2013 159W? Seems like it would be a good park board.

For bindings I found Ride Revolt bindings for $100.

Any thoughts?
Stretch your budget just a little.

Arbor Coda Snowboard - 2012/2013 at REI.com

Super fun board. I rode a 153 (at 145lbs) and was nimble at bear yet let me ride almost all over Squaw (didn't do k2 since it was super icy). My friend rode a blacklist all over Mammoth so these boards can handle these resorts unless you're going to get crazy. The rocker should help with float as well.

For a full rocker it's surprisingly poppy/springy. Griptech. All around great board.

At your weight and height I personally would go 161 but it's your call
