My wife and I are snowboarding in vail and I'm trying to figure out what board length to go with.
Height: 5'0"
weight: 165
riding: no park. Mostly groomers, some powder. While she doesn't exactly blaze down the trails ATM I want something that could handle the speed. She's been demoing a 145 but I'm worried that may be a bit short in the long run. Thanks for the input!

145 is pretty short for her, but it also depends on her preferences. Measure according to weight. I would recommend something between 150 and 155, but hopefully others will chime in here with some suggestions as well.

Glad she's demoing, by the way. :thumbsup:

+1 on that length
moguls will be easier on 150
more stable at higher speed and a bit more float on pow on 155

The 151 or 154 is what to consider. If she is strong and will be hitting pow go for the 154. A 151 is fine if she wants something easy to throw around.
