Looking at both of these boards to save a few bucks instead of buying the 2017. Would like to know what the differences are. I'm looking for a board that is versatile - aggressive on steep groomers, but good in powder and through trees. They both seem very similar.

I own the 2015 163 but only spent 4 powder days on it (looking to sell it now). It handled really well in powder but just a little short for my weight to maximize float (going with a 165 Prior). Didn't really get a chance to test it on groomers but the camber with rocker tip should do well since the camber gives it some dampness. I would say the turn radius is a little larger so not ideal for tight turns/moguls but that's obvious. A true free ride deck that I think will rip on groomers due to the camber.
