I think you could/should go for the 158. I started this year and I'm 135 pounds and learned on a 155. Given, you could take the 155 and it would help you pick up snowboarding faster, but since you want to do a lot of all mountain riding, the 158 would suit you better in the future.
EDIT: Just wanted to clarify that I did not learn on a 155 NS SL. I learned on a 155 Rossignol noodle so it would be a bit more forgiving than an SL presumably.

IMO the SL is just a resort board, not bomber enough to be a true all mountain board, but too directional to be freestyle. There are more aggressive boards in the NS lineup if you're into charging more difficult terrain.
If you're looking for something park friendly go with the Proto. Similar flex to the SL just with a centered stance which makes it 10x better for riding and landing switch. I'm 6' 185and find the Proto 157 is best for ripping and jumping. It handles resort riding just as well as the SL does.
If you're set on the SL there's no reason to size down, 158 all the way.

Lots of factors to consider here, What are you looking for in this board? Is it your only board? Are you a beginner? Advanced? Size shoe? Weight? Provide those and you'll give more experienced members on here something to work with. I'm sure the size suggestions will start rolling in shortly after that.
