I'm getting my first split I was planning on getting the 158 but wanted to see if any one thinks the 162 would be better and why.
Stats
5'7"
175#
10.5 Boot
PNW N ID is home tighter trees at times
Besides N ID will use in the Cascades including volcanos, Canadian Rockies and W Montana Cabinets
I will use this board to approach for ice/alpine climbs also so a little heavier pack at times.
158 ww 24.9
162 ww 25.4
I currently ride a 158
Thanks
Jason

N Idaho, Canadian Rockies, and MT are dry powder areas. You will want the bigger surface area of the 162 at your weight for floatation, unless spinning 1080s off of backcountry kickers is your priority.

I have the 162, and I do have to say that due to the rockered tips, it handles quite nimbly in tight trees. It's a good board with great design features. I love the topsheet material and the bevelled top sheet, which minimizes scratches from when I cross my skis.
