Where are you riding in montana. I'm in bozeman mainly riding/hiking bridger. Montana has great freeriding but isn't the pow meca like the nw, tahoe, lcc, jackson... a freeride board with a powder shape is ideal.
Ride Highlife or bezercer
Lib lanina gnu billygoat
Neversummer cobra or raptor
Most of the venture boards

Setting your stance back a notch or two is really going to help (but you are still going to get some leg burn). Try sportslegs.

If you also set the bindings back, I say get a p0w board. I bought a charlie slasher last year and it was life changing. You spend more time riding the board than worrying about keeping your nose up. Price is right too $399
For the record, I am by NO MEANS an expert powder rider, I've only had 8 days total riding the fresh and deep. The last two days on Charlie were magical.

|Twizard93||Ive done 2 or 3 powder runs on the Bowls at Breckenridge and I was starting to get some bad leg burn. it seemed like the tip sank a little bit if i wasn't leaning back a lot. maybe i just need more time on the back slopes?|

|Twizard93||Boot size is a 12 and Im wondering if it would make sense having a dedicated powder board for resorts given what I already own.|

|Wiredsport||Already asked, but must-have info for deck sizing (even for a powder deck). What is your foot size?|

I'm slightly bigger at 6'1" and 175 lbs and ride a 154 for hardpack only days and a 163 for everything else (I like being used to my big board when it dumps huge). The 154 is skatey fun, but I wouldn't want to be stuck with it in anything over a foot deep.
The 163 handles up to about chest deep pow, but I can still spin 360s and other tricks on it....point is, it's more rider skill/experience than board.
I also wear a size 11 shoe without riding a wide board, so unless you wear a 12+, you probably don't need the extra waist width.
