Picked a 148 up last year as a change up from my 157.5 riders choice. Fun change of pace. I was surprised how well it handled moderate amounts of powder. I felt like it taxed my old legs a bit more, but the skatey feel is rewarding. And of course you can really throw it around.

It does have it's limits. I wouldn't ride it on anything over 8" of new in the PNW. Can't speak for other areas. Had a couple of late spring days where a few " of wet heavy snow Made the nug feel too short. Stuck to the park and groomers on those days and had tons of fun. Not super stable bombing at high speeds. My RC spoiled me at high speeds and I paid the price a few times trying to pull the same shit on the nug.
