I've got the standard ET (softer than the artist edition) and even it's stiff for most jibby park stuff.
as much as I love TBT, if most of what you ride is really steep groomers (and/or ice), I wouldn't recommend it. You really want the most effective edge touching the surface all at once for that...or skis (2 boards w/ tons of really sharp effective edge)
(however, TBT conforms to/handles moguls better than any other snowboard I've ridden...if you're into that)
