Antler is quite soft, great for butters etc, lightweight, lots of tech.
Custom is more all around, do everything, best Flying V on hardpack.
Process is a good choice if budget matters.
For this year I will chase powder as much as I can but since I live in Sweden and it's been raining for the last weeks I am not that optimistic. Perhaps I can get 2-3 days. Closest bigger place is Trysil and they have some nice off piste areas there - if they get more snow.
For next year plenty I hope, since me and my friends will go to Japan for 10 days
Apart from powder I would like to try more buttering, spins and switch riding this year. Hopefully I get a board I can use for many years ahead - thus budget is a minor issue.
