Picked this board up on sale the day before I left for Tahoe. Snowed something like 8 feet over the course of the week, 3 of which I was there for. This was my first pow board, and I loved it. Set the stance back and it just floated over the endless amount of pow. Got face shots like a porn star, and still shredded every cliff, pillow, stash Sierra had. I'm 5'6 145, and went with the 156, I liked it being a bit smaller so I could get through the trees easier, but it still floated like a dream.
