Here in Japan the parks are not as big and many places barely have one. Hence ground trick specialists.
At my local hill there are plenty of dudes who rock tricks like this video.
Its pretty sweet to watch from the lift.

Your boards fine, if anything butters on icey days is a little more difficult than on pow. but it doesn't really make a difference.

to the OP. Yes of course a softer board will be easier to press, but there's no reason at all you can't do a lot on your SL. Try moving your hips in line with the snowboard over your front or back leg and see where and how it flexes the board. Keep your upper body upright while you do this. Also think of the progression you need to follow. Start with tail presses (riding straight and flat in snowboarding's version of a manual). Nose presses. Switch tail and nose press. When you are comfortable with those its not too difficult to get things sideways and or spinning as you butter your way around. Make sure your comfortable with flat-ground 180's in both directions.
Obviously find somewhere with a very gentle pitch to practice on...back to the easy terrain. This is fun stuff to work on when you're riding with people who are just beginning and need to practice on the greens. I think butters are fun, and teach you massive amounts of board and body control.

|MistahTaki||thats how i f'd up my leg last season. i dont what you call but i go into a tail with such an high angle that it sprays snow. anyways I was doing that and the tail of the board slipped forward under and bent my leg and caused a minor fracture.|
