Based on your weight and if it's for all over the mountain I would definitely say to go with the 149, but you'll be fine with either of them, especially if you're still learning (and not going super...

Out of curiosity, what are your "normal" angles? I learned to snowboard duckfoot, but this year wanted to switch it up with a zero (or even slightly positive) angle with my back foot - so I adjusted...

Yeah, her feet are quite a bit smaller than mine - so you're right, she might be better with a more narrow board. I think the longest board I've ever owned was the one I learned on :p Hope she likes...

I haven't been on either of them (sorry!), but I do find Rome's size charts for women's boards a bit weird. I was also at the top end of the weight range when I bought my 147 Rome Gold this year,...

You could check out Solitude in Utah? No lift lines at all when I was there, and pretty great snow. Didn't snow at all for the week before I was there, yet parts of Honeycomb Canyon and nearby...

When you say you're looking for a women's board with an "excellent" in carving, do you mean on TheGoodRide? Cause I will note that the Rome Gold I mentioned a couple posts ago did have an "excellent"...

I got a new board this year - the Rome Gold - it might be worth a demo. I'm finding it fantastic on groomers, it really carves well and is fast from edge to edge. It also picks up speed quickly, I...

I noticed this as well when I bought my Rome Gold in December. Based on my weight (around 115-120), their size chart made it seem like I would be better with the 152 (so I would be in the middle of...

Interesting what you say about the Salomon Kiana. I have a very long and narrow foot, and these are the best boots I've had - no heel lift, and I can get them nice and tight. I don't find them wide...

Thanks! I only have one board, so not much of a choice for that. It's supposed to be ok in powder though, camber/rocker combo so probably better than my last board (camber only). I am definitely...

Ok, thanks. That second picture doesn't look steep at all haha, I can definitely handle stuff way steeper than that. Looks like a square to me. Or it could just be a part of a diamond - sometimes...

Thanks for the tips! I think I've decided on Snowbasin, Solitude, and Snowbird. I'm sure I'll be back to try out the other places at some point, and these 3 seem to be a good mix for this trip. How...

What size board do you have now? I think you should be able to handle the 147 fine if you are muscular and it's a soft flex (but again, I'm biased to longer boards). I'm on a 147 now, and I stay out...

There's personal preference to take into account as well, but I learned to snowboard on a 149 (I was still growing at the time weight-wise, maybe a 95-105 lb range, height was like 5' to 5'3"), and I...
