TLN I'm 220lbs, don't know height in ft, about 196cm, and i ride Legacy 174. Grab the longer board for a speeds and more control. You won't do a 720's from a pow, will u?

walove rocker between the feet as the neversummers have makes big boards very easy and quick to turn. Im 165lbs and ride a 165 lib snowmullet with btx in the tightest of trees with no problem. For pow i prefer a softer board vs. a stiffer big mountain board, so i would look more at the raptor, or summit with taper for ultimate float, taper makes a board quicker to turn as well.

linvillegorge Not sure if it's lighter, but probably not enough to make a difference.

Don't forget the Summit. If you're looking for a dedicated pow stick, that's the one.

snowjab Yea i think the longest I will do is 166 cus I do like going into trees. I heard the raptor is a bit lighter than the premier?

linvillegorge Pure pow slayer? I'd go Premeir F1 165 if not even 168. I'm 3" shorter and about 25-30# lighter than you (when I'm in shape, not at the moment unfortunately) and I'd probably go 163 and wouldn't pass up a decent deal on a 165.

If you were looking for this as an all-mountain board, I'd say 163, but for pure pow slaying? Go big.

I have a 165 Arbor Element that I ride in pow and it takes a little more effort to throw it around in the trees, but the extra float is worth it when it's deep.
