Default All mountain

Looking for a board which will ride groomers and backcountry in my local mountain, and deep pow in Japan. I'm more freestyle orientated guy who likes to skate around the mountain. I want a board which can ride switch easy, so I'm after twin or directional twin shape.

How are these boards?
- Nitro Rook
- K2 Raygun
- K2 Happy Hour
- Burton Trick Pony

Any other recommendations?

by K2 i would look into the ultra dream, rather than the two you listed.

Burton Sherlock is twin, loves powder, ok on groomers, hates ice.

Burton juice wagon loves powder, devours groomers, even icy ones, but it's very directional.

This is a common trade off people run into.

A tapered cambered board tend to do well on pow and groomers, but is directional.

Rockered or hybrid twin boards like powder and switch, but suffer as the snow conditions harden.

ive been riding a lib tech t rice pro for 3 seasons now and its my go to board for cruising around the mountain, buttering groomers, riding trees, pow and hitting side hits. i ride it in a true twin, centred fashion and find its a fairly aggressive board for a true twin. i find it hold its own in pow upto maybe 20cm but at that point you wont find much more float from anything unless you go with a more tapered, pow specific shape.

in general:
-rides switch well
-handles ice
-great through trees
-great for freestyle and tricks
-doesnt feel too good on rails
-rides pow <20cm

not sure how it would hold up in japow but its a great all mountain resort board.

Sounds to me like you're looking for two boards. Got a good, all-mountain twin or directional twin then get you a pow stick.

perhaps a marhar bohemian. It should handle Pow really well, and can do all mountain... check Agnarchy review here

"thankfully Nate & Josh let me loan the Bohemian in hopes of being able to ride it in some powder down in North Carolina"



But actually, it does look like it could potentially fit the bill.
