Default Board for trees and steeps

Hi all, just looking for a new board that can turn on a dime for doing tight trees and steeps. Also want it to be able to ride pow really well.

Any boards out there you guys think would suit?

cheers

For steeps, you need stability, meaning a longer, stiffer board. For trees, you want manueveribility, meaning a shorter faster turning board.

To do both with one board, and handle powder, you'll want a mid flex freeride board, with slight taper (<10mm).
