It wasn't really a question just a comment on his response to my opinion in post 2 that a skate bananna isn't the greatest board for use on ice and hard pack. I have 2 boards with magnetraction so I'm pretty familiar with how it works and what it does. I'm also of the belief that any board can be ridden any where on the mt in any condition. That being said I personally use a board best suited to the overall conditions of the day and, or the riding I'll be doing.
