I can't comment on the Goat but I have ridden my SL 158 (I'm 187 lbs & wear size 10.5 boots) in spring conditions in Vermont and Virginia. Both are C/R/C and the SL comes in a 151, 153, 155, 158 and longer lengths. It did great in slush, chop, glades (although I would have gotten a smaller version if this was my main intent), and it's a very versatile board. The Goat though offers a split variant if you plan on doing a lot of hiking.
As a few other people asked what's your weight and boot size?
