Arbor Coda or NS snowtrooper
 
I am an all mountain rider (my home mountain is Snowshoe WV and I spend a lot of time in the backcountry) I need a board that can handle all elements of the mountain from icy days to deep powder and backcoutry to carving to park. Which board should I get and if you have any other boards to look at that would be awesome as well. Thanks!

My friend has a 2011 165 coda and he only rides it on powder days because its a boat. Anything with a flat camber or an R/C/R camber should work pretty well for what you want to do

Also what I recommend you doing is to start building a quiver. If you already have a board keep using that one as your everyday rider and maybe look into getting a park or pow specific board. then when you can get the next board you would like to have.
I started building a quiver 2 years ago. I started with a 156 gnu spacecase for my everyday all mountain-ish. I then picked up a 152 rome garage rocker for hot lap park days. I'll be picking up a dedicated pow board this fall.

Haha building a quiver is like a crack habit, addictive and expensive. :hooked:

Hi Cmac,

Speaking for the Coda only: it is designed for exactly your use and holds in surprisingly well on hardpack and ice. Not a park board but you can sure take some laps. Very biased as a dealer but this one deserves its rep at the top of the heap. 2015's will arrive in the next 2 weeks.

I just picked up a Snowtrooper, and though I haven't ridden it yet, I can already tell I'm going to like it better then the Legacy I rode last year (which I loved). The newer shape makes the tips (and whole board really) feel a lot lighter, and the flex has more spring in it (it's their EXRC this year vs. their RC). I dig the mix of playful (for the park and general cruising around) with still being able to hold an edge that the SL/Legacy boards had, the Snowtrooper just seems like it's going to be even better.

Coda no question. Flat out better board.

Nivek, just curious have you ridden the Snowtrooper? If so can you elaborate? Thanks
