Sherlock is a fun ride in good snow.

Otherwise I say get the Happy Hour cause it's better through hardpack.
What is a tapered twin? Does that just mean the stance/sidecut are centered, but the tail is narrower than the nose?

I'm surprised a true twin would perform better on hardpack than a directional twin. I'm not saying a directional board is intrinsically better for hardpack design wise. I just mean I were to design a board and I intentionally made it directional. I would make it have better edge hold (but it could just be that K2 did better job than Burton). But what do I know about board design Ignore my late night ramblings.

How does the Happy Hour compare to the Ultra Dream.
