Maybe you didn't read the whole post, I AM considering the Barracuda as I have just moved to CO last week and plan to ride as often as possible.
The previous comment was in response to your question about riding an "s-rocker" board... which I had not due to the fact I lived in TN.
Great then. You will get plenty of Pow days from here on out. Honestly, since you will have the conditions, I would highly suggest that you demo and not listen to any of us
. Everything is about to change in terms of your board needs. You may find that your favorite setup is not on your current list. You are in for a great year!
