Thought I'd include pow/freeride. I should really look into other brands than Capita/Bataleon and Yes. So many brands

Echelon Killbox for park/shenanigans

Yonex Unfix for even more shenanigans, and to cause wtf's and double-takes being carried to/from the snow (yes, this looks like the B2F hoverboard)

Other than that my K2 Parkstar keeps me happy in every type of terrain i have encountered so far.

Got now 4 that cover my purposes. All can be used for fresh and carving groomers, some are just better in certain conditions. Stiff RCR Flagship for pow, soft RCR Farah for crud, full camber Jewel for groomer days, split Solution for hiking.

Ice and hardpackband crud: cambered burton board - vapor/custom/process

Soft snow but not deep: flyng v burton board - mystery/custom/process

Deep snow: Fish/cheetah/barracuda/sherlock/trick pony/landlord/stone hut

Btw, I think three is the right number, more than that and you're mostly collecting

My friend's flying v is looking very tempting this year. Although I hate its design, its performance seems to be quiet promising.
