small or big board for spring riding?

Which is better for quick turns on steep spring snow /"spring corn"? Bigger or smaller (just got a mini board and will try that, too)?

What really matters is having the correct base structure

do you mean sintered vs extruded? Or do you mean stance setup?

Thanks!

They are talking structure of base.

You want vertical brush stroke and or 45 degree stroke to pull water away from the board.

In cold temp u want smooth surface so nothing sticks.

That's the basic logist of it
