I ride in the east as well on a 3 year old 161 SL. And aside from a few great days at Jay Peak, we don't have powder like they do out west. Floatation isn't generally much of an issue here.

That said, I have the SL out west at Kicking Horse and Revelstoke for some serious 70cm deep stuff and once I set the bindings back, it performed pretty well. Not dedicated powder board well, but pretty good for a one quiver board.

That pretty much describes the SL, pretty good at everything, not outstanding at any one thing. And since that describes my riding style, it is a good fit for me.

If the place you find it, online or in-store, doesn't have it on sale, ask if they price match.

Hopefully it's not too late though, because as far as I know, the NS SL is their best selling board and I had a hard time finding two months ago when I was looking. Most stores in my local area sell out of the SL in mid to early December!
Yeah I think that the only difference between 2012 and 2013 SL is the topsheet, and imo the 2012 topsheet is better.

Thanks all. I'm currently looking into prices and such...although I am also looking around for reviews to see if anything changes my mind. If all goes well I'll post a newbie review once I get the board.
