Need help with finding all mountain/powder board
 
Hi all, I want to get a powder board that can be good for all mountain as well more than all mountain good for powder...if that make sense. 2 years ago i decided to buy a new board and went for the graphics of Technine TK 158. It' OK board but this year we had 3 days non stop snow and I did not enjoyed it at all. I moved the bindings all the way to the back but the board just doesn't float. I snowboard 1 or 2 weeks per season but I want to enjoy the time I spent in the mountain. I am advanced rider, 5' 9" 190lbs. I feel comfortable on boards from 155 to 160 but prefer 157-158. I don't want to spend more than $500 on a board. It does not have to be newest model. Graphics don't matter this time :) I prefer back bowls, trees and fresh pow. I usually go to the Rockies. Next season we are thinking Jackson Hole. From what I read online LibTech, GNU with the banana technology are good but are they all good for I need them for or just specific models? Found an article saying these are good powder/all mountain: BATALEON OMNI 158, ROME NOTCH 158, BURTON BARRACUDA 158. I'd appreciate ideas for other boards especially if you have experience with powder boards. Thank you

pretty much any board with a taper nose should be enough for mt riding.

Prior Khyber: Khyber Snowboard Model From Prior Snowboards | Powder Snowboard | Whistler BC Canada

Powder/Freeride board, heavy emphasis on directional riding, good float, but still with a regular tail so you CAN go switch if you want (compared to a true powder board).

Thank you all for your input! I like Never Summer so far. Cobra, heritage or Premier F1 may be. I'll have a few months to decide and to get something on a good deal. Thanks again!

Cobra. Most all mountain pow-friendly board out of those 3.

Any reason you've locked in on Never Summer?
