I don't know much about the Salomon board. But, I bought the K2 Brigade wide 159cm, and I have to say, it's made me feel much more confident on the mountain. The K2 board has "Catch-Free Rocker" tech. What does that mean? I'm not exactly sure, but I can tell you that while on it last week, I was turning, riding toeside & heelside without catching an edge, doing 360's on the ground while turning, and I felt great about being able to do it.
I'm mostly ride greens/blues, do a few jumps in the terrain park, and I really feel like I made a great buy. This board allows you to go fast when you have the desire/trail, but makes you feel comfortable about doing so.
My 2 cents.
