The 2012 Ride Manic might be a pretty good option for you. It's a solid board and a really low price. Assuming it has the same all-terain rocker as the 2013 version (im sure it does), it will probably handle powder better than your old timeless....hopefully you get some powder in Utah.

Im not familiar with the Contract, so no opinion there.

I would think the Manic would perform better than the 11 year-old timless. I'm not certain of that, but snowboard tech has changed soooo much in the last 5 years that I imagine it sould be better. I think rocker will definitely help in powder over the camber on the 2001 board.
