PYL. Its the flex you're looking for, camrock is generally more stable than RC and floats better than traditional camber. Thr only other board I'd add would be the Flow Blackout or Salomon Man's board. Take a look and see what you think.

Wow! I found this site called "the clymb" and they have a few Yes boards for a wicked price. They have the 2014 Jackpot for $249.99.

The only PYL they have is the 2011-2012 though.

Any of you guys ride the Yes Big City?

I found one online for $229. From what I read it's perfect for my riding style. I love powder but I don't always find it. Maybe it might be better suited for me and the cost is do good I might have to jump on it.

You have a week to ride, and it's planned on your vacation, not the weather. I do the same thing, but do 2 trips for about 18 days. Same limits though, the weather is the weather. My point is that the odds of deep pow at a resort for a 6 day window are small, and even when it happens it's inches not feet.

I would pick a board accordingly. Getting a full on powder freeride deck would not be ideal. A powder/freeride oriented all mountain would be a better choice.

Based on what you say you want to ride, and because it matches what I look for almost exactly, I would recommend the cobra. Plenty stable at speed, quick edge to edge and turn initiation makes it great in trees, and it holds a line on hard pack/ice well. Middle of the road on stiffness, so it's not a stiff ass plank that takes a lot of work.

That would be great but I'm 5'7, 155lbs. A 161 wide board would be huge for me
me. Thanks though GLWS.

Thanks for the advice. I will consider it.

The PYL was a choice because of its ability to go anywhere, but I keep hearing it's more of a powder board that happens to be good elsewhere.

Hmmmm.....decisions.

Exactly, as opposed to an all mountain board that happens to be good in powder

Any thoughts on the Yes Big City (formerly the Optimist)?

I found one on the Clymb for $229 and the same board won Good Wood in 2011

Disclaimer: haven't ridden it. But comparing numbers with the cobra, the big city has a shorter effective edge and shorter sidecut radius. Advertised as freestyle as well. From this, I would call it an all mountain board that can be used in the park. Won't hold edge on ice as well, and won't make long carves as well either, but should be better for butter/jib etc. Doesn't sound like a good fit for you to me.
