Resort: Arapahoe Basin
Conditions: Low visibility, excessive winds, recent snow, colder temps, and the ever so slight second of a break within the storm.
Flex: This board has a slight directional center of the street flex. The one factor I wish to be aware is that the nostril is simply barely softer proper the place the rocker meets the camber zone then it’s just about a constant flex all the way in which to the tail.
Stability: Getting into rutted out terrain this board by no means bucked me round or washed out. It really did an awesome job absorbing chatter and conserving me above the recent snow.
Ollies/Pop: Having camber provides this board all its snap. You can load it up and actually pop or be extra laid again and nonetheless get ample snap. It’s straightforward to have interaction and doesn’t combat you.
Butterability: OK so the massive factor with this board is that flex level within the nostril the place the rocker meets the camber. It locks in and holds while you need it to or you possibly can come out of it with subsequent to no effort. By far this board simply pow buttered so nicely.

Rider in Mind: The man that’s going to chase recent snow, rail banked slalom turns, and desires a board with an old-fashioned form.
Personal Thoughts: This board blew me away with how nicely it dealt with the entire mountain. It popped off rollers and cat tracks with ease. This board was simply enjoyable, and actually let me discover the mountain and didn’t maintain me again. It’s nice in recent snow and the tail sinks actual nicely permitting you to get essentially the most face photographs and slashes.
