The K2 TurboDream is the board they modeled their Panoramic backcountry Split board off of , it's like an "all mountain powder board" , I'm 5'11, weigh 185Lbs, ride the 157 wide and leave everyone behind on POW days except those that have dedicated powder boards. It has reverse camber up from and a very small amount in back.

I would also 2nd the pow snake especially at that price and trust me you WANT reverse camber or flat camber for a pow stick.
So I was way off on the k2 gyrator. I had it backwards. My only experience riding a pow board was a S-rocker mololo and fish. With my current board it's a GNU park pickle which is reverse camber. It floats alright in pow but it carves like shit. I figured reverse cambers weren't as good as a mixed rocker/camber board.

So you're saying I would want a reverse camber for pow? Not a mix? Like a S-camber or even a mixed camber(rocker in middle, cambered under both feet).
