As far as the conditions i ride in, i live in the north east and go to killington about 10-15 times a season and to local mountains quite a bit, mostly its hard packed granular and ice at the local mountains and at killington the conditions are usually good, if they dont get any snow there usually good about making it. Also, im going to mont tremblant in early jan and if usually snows non-stop there so hopefully ill get some good power conditions while im there. I just dont want a board thats similar to the skate banana, because im going to be taking them both where ever i go (esp. to mont tremblant) and depending on the conditions and what i feel like doing for the day, i can easily switch
I don't know who told you this, but they were definitely wrong. I usually make at least 1 trip there a season, and while they do usually have good conditions, they are probably not going to be what you're expecting. I'd actually pick Killington or Jay Peak over Tremblant any day.

There are many other mountains around Tremblant that are, IMO better, and less "touristy" so you won't run into over crowded lift lines, etc. My favorite place near Tremblant was actually a smaller place called Mont Garceau. It's only 1000ft vertical drop (less than half of Tremblant) but I've always found conditions to be much better.

There are MANY places in Quebec that are massively better than Tremblant if you're willing to travel a little farther, but I won't clog up your thread any more than this, lol.

TL;DR: Don't go to Tremblant.
