154cm-162cm snowboards tend more towards your all mountain or powder (pow) board. The best all-mountain and pow sticks are usually Lib Tech, Jones, Nitro, Burton, Ride, Arbor, Bataleon or Salomon. In order to ride powder you should be intermediate to advanced on the slopes. If you’re a seasoned pow hound and are riding steep and deep then you will want something longer, especially if the board has a more conventional shape ie a directional freeride board. However, if you are looking at a directional twin you would want to go 2-3cm shorter than usual. If you plan on buying something specifically for powder with a stubbed tail like a swallow tail or camel toe (alternative freeride) then you can sometimes go as low as 4-6cm shorter than your traditional length.
