Hi Wiredsport, I'm riding in Southern California, mostly Mt. Baldy and Mountain High . Thanks.
The last two posters have given great advice, Camber works great for what you are looking to do. A little bit of rocker at the tip and tail to lift the contact points (Rocker Camber Rocker) works incredibly well. There are a lot of models and nuances that are great. A sub category here are the 3D options (Bataleon, Rome) which also provide tons of edge hold and keep the contact points out of harms way.
Camber Rocker Camber offers some amazing options as well. Never Summer, Mervin Brands, etc.
Please let us know if there is a specifc brand that you were leaning towards and we will be happy to drill down some more specific suggestions.
