strongly suggest a Libtech with magna-traction. works in all kinds of snow, especially ice & crud. everyone who has one says the board was a major confidence booster in their riding. I switched from a Burton Custom X to a Skate Banana after riding one only 200'---that's all I needed to know how much better it was than anything I'd ridden before.
Did you miss the part were he said under 200 is his price range? Unless of course you selling one for under that. I ride GNU so I understand your points lets just try and remember that not everyone is looking to drop a lot of dough on a board. Reading the OPs post would have clarified this for you.
