Default Snowboard for hardpack

Hi,

I'm looking for a new board that will allow me to go hyper fast in hard-pack and ice, but still hold up through powder. I'm considering the Lib Tech T. Rice Pro and would like more suggestions.

Cheers!

The Beast by GNU also looks good.

Lib TRS rips up the ice, the powder, and everything in between. The T. Rice would be a pretty good choice too though.

Depends on what kind of powder you're riding, where you ride normally, your skill level, etc.

Generally the longer the board, the better the edge hold on hardpack/ice, and also the better the float in powder, but there is a cost to manoeuvrability. Give us some more info and hopefully we can help you better...
