The CNN's told me California is expecting 3-4 feet. Did you pick your powder stick?
I ended up getting the K2 Gyrator with a set of Burton Prophecy bindings. Here is my quick review from this weekend.
stance: regular, 15, -6, 25mm back
condition: it was dumping hardcore!
terrain: Kirkwood. steep, deep, and lots of rocks to play on/off of.
No more leg burn. This board just loves the white stuff!
In open fields you get a very fun surfy feeling and you will have a smile on your face!
In the trees the board can be a little hard to get from edge to edge when things get super tight. However, some good foresight will often make up for this.
Towards the end of the day as things track out it got pretty rough. I had zero problems getting the board to power through anything I threw at it.
This board has a lot of pop for a powder board. I had no problem clearing cliff bands, and other obstructions.
I had a couple really close calls messing up landings where my weight was just too far forward. The board would dip in, and just pop back out.
The shape of the nose/tail create a very low swing weight. This makes spinning surprisingly easy.
I would recommend this board to anyone looking for a playful freeride/powder board. While not something I'd bring to say Alaska, this board is great for inbounds/sidecountry/general backcountry riding. While you could go through the park on this board its not going to feel exceptionally awesome compared to a true freestyle board.

If it was a 158+ I think it would be a better board. However, even at the longer length I don't think it would match the fun I have with the Gyrator.
