I understand, let me clarify. Groomers... all year full day. I've been on boards that are great for freshly groomed runs and ice but on warm days in the afternoon are not great when the snow is soft and 5000 people have trashed the snow. I have a board I ride in fresh pow and a board for the park... I need something for when a buddy goes lets run international top to bottom for a beer... and i get near the bottom and end up squirly or slow in sloppy snow.
I'm not that hardcore so I have a hard time going BX or alpine all the way.
I dont hang out in the park. and this is for days when there is no pow and I dont feel like going backcountry or take the T bar. idk if that's any better lol
