Default 1st board for east coast ice/groomers Gnu CHB MTX?

i'm seriously considering pairing this with some cartels from sierra today. i've been out maybe 25 times in my life, took 6 lessons for a PE credit this semester and i'm gaining confidence.

i already bought a pair of burton tributes. i know they're their cheapest boots, but i tried on more than a dozen pairs before finding them to fit the best. my only problem with the tributes is i have really high arches and am getting pressure on the top of my left (front) foot and need to readjust it too much.

I ride in SW PA mostly. Seven springs and Hidden valley. I just recently picked up a GNU CHB MTX 159 and I don't know how I've been riding anything else. The chatter and slide so familiar to scraped runs is almost gone entirely. The ride is smooth and the control is fantastic. I really recommend this board to any all-mountain rider- not just east coast.

Pull the trigger...you'll love it.

If you want a board that is a little better and will allow you to progress a little further, check out the GNU Riders Choice MTX. Similar, but just a little stiffer with more advanced tech. (i.e. better base). Just a little more money.
