Love my venture divide 162. have sparks baseplates. Rock it in the bc, sidecountry, and rarely inbounds (since I currently live in Frontrange CO and everything is flat or rocks). Great flex in powder and hardpack. Lots of pop and not as heavy as a prior backcountry split. Skins like a champ. I can also butter and spin on it. Plus, really friendly customer service.
Rode in Maritime snow during December in Pacific NW. Only complaint is that high density snow sticks to topsheet, so you have to wax your topsheet.
