This board is awesome! At first I was concerned because the shape of this board is pretty reverse, but after riding I fell in love. It is perfectly stiff for holding an edge and taking some harsh landings but plenty soft to press to the moon. I have also ridden in some deeper snow, but because of the park specific technology and the sizes its best inside terrain park lines. I have the 148, and am about 5'10 so its very park oriented for me.
