I chose the SL because of the locations I get to ride. I live in Ohio where the local hill has a 250 ft. vertical drop. 3.5 hrs away are 3 resorts in New York and Pennsylvania that have wait for it: 700 ft of vertical drop. Vermont is a 12 hr drive.
Since +90% of my riding will be on small hills I wanted a more playful board. I'll probably start doing kickers this year. Last year was my first year boarding after 10 years of skiing.
I've never boarded in Powder and likely won't see it this year. No snowboarding trip. I've got to save vacation for a honeymoon! Cobra is the wrong board period.
The Heritage was less playful for the small hills I ride. It was a hard decision though.
