Will the ET handle pow better? do you think the et would be the better all around choice for my style of riding, even though the ET is a bit more flexible/park oriented?
btw, I am ~160 lbs, sz.10.5-11 boot
I would suggest the 2012 ET, The longer smoother tip/tail transition will help a lot on those powder days. The slightly softer tips on the ET will be perfect for those conditions. If you ride a lot of hardpack and ice then you would want to consider a more freeride oriented model, but it sounds like you are in a soft snow area.
