Hey, new to the forum and snowboarding in general, but looking to upgrade my board. I've rode about 20 times, but am able to navigate blacks, ollies, ect.

I was wondering which style is best for which kind of conditions. From what I understand rocker is better for powder and camber is better for the harder snow? I live in Vail and usually ride Vail and BC. I'd say about 1/4-1/3 of the days are powder and the others are not.

I'm looking for something for mainly freeriding right now, and maybe progress to a little park toward the end of the season.

What do you think would be the best fit?

I've heard good things about NS and Lib, specifically the NS Proto CT, which I've heard can hold an edge like a Camber, but can also float through powder.

Your input is appreciated! Thanks!
