If by Big Mountain, you mean that through the gate shit, there is zero debate for me. The T Rice eats it up and provides the stability needed to do things. There is a lot of NS love here. I own a Heritage for this year...so I am not biased. But NS currently doesn't make a dedicated, true twin, big mountain board. The Proto is a great board. I've ridden it for about 3 days. I would call it your perfect resort all mountain / free style board. Great in the jump line, plenty of pop, fun in the trees, fun on groomers, playful, but still stable enough at speed. But big mountain? I don't know, there was a night and day difference taking this board down the Hobacks in Jackson Hole, and the TRice. TRice just killed it....
