all around pow board or good board in pow
Powder board for all-mountain riding or all-mountain board that excels in powder?
I am an east coast rider who wants to keep no more than two boards. Currently riding a NS Evo-R 158 and a 163 Nitro Shogun. I like having one to butter around and jib on but then one for going fast and to handle the steeps when I go out west. Looking to replace the shogun but certainly don't get enough powder days for a true pow specific board that can't hold it's own on the groomers.
Is there a powder board that can truly handle ripping groomers or what all-mountain board does exceptionally well in the powder? I don't need a board for buttering, jibs, or really riding switch that well. Just want something that can go fast, is stable and will serve me well on the few pow days I do get. Just stick with a directional, tapered board with setback or try something that has rocker to it, etc?
Hopefully this makes sense.
