I have a Horrorscope and used to live out east. It very fun for pressing and messing around in the park, but I wouldn't recommend for hitting the whole mountain. Too soft and the edges felt a bit hooky at the tip and tail comapred to my NS SL, whose vario sidecut excelled on east coast ice. I imagine the Evo wouldn't be too dissimilar as far as ice hold, but can't give you an informed answer, and haven't tried the other boards sorry. But at this point I'd rather have gotten the Evo over the Horrorscope for versatility.
