I have a machete and absolutely love it...such a fun board. I may do park in the future but for right now it's an all mountain board. It's really hard to explain what it's like to ride it..just playful/fun and gives you tons of room for error. I've ridden in a lot of different snow conditions and I've had zero issues. I riden some of my friends boards and it seems the Machete you can get by with a few mistakes here and there and it doesn't bite you. It's definitely one of those things where I was a bit hesitant to purchase but afterwards feel it was an awesome choice/no regrets.
