Nitro Sub Zero

I just ordered a 155 Nitro Sub Zero off Sierra Snowboards. They were having their yearly sale, half off everything (I think everything, at least most stuff). I was looking at a lot of boards, especially the Custom V-Rocker. I figured I wanted something unique and I came across the Sub Zero. I noticed a lot of the reviews said that it was mostly for jibbing. I ordered it, because it was the last few hours of the sale, and thought it was a really nice board. It was also an amazing deal. I've been looking at reviews by companies and other reviews online. Some say you should use it almost strictly for jibbing (rails, boxes, especially good for kinks) and this kinda bugged me. I like to hit my share of boxes and rails, but I especially like hitting kickers and tree trails, and I love getting into some deep powder and carving the shit out of it. Carving is one of my strong points, but I'm okay in the park. I'm from St. Louis, which only has one small resort and it's nothing special. That said, I will probably spend 90% of my time riding every season in the park. The only thing is, I go to Colorado once or twice a year, and love to hit long tree trails, powder in the bowls, the works. Does this board do well in powder and tree riding? I've heard mixed things about that. If you have one, or know about them, please let me know. I also ordered Burton Custom bindings, if you know anything about them, throw it in. Also any boot recomendations. Thanks guys.

brother used to have it (well the sub-pop)... its super soft but actually rides really well, just prepare for it be to different from any other snowboard you have ever ridden.

Since then he went to an indoor survival 158, which obviously doesn't press as well but gives that extra stability and pop for hucking big spins off big kickers.

I mainly just road my buddies neversummer, and in colorado I rented demo packs, they were normally really nice. but if he would go with me to hidden valley, I would have to rent their boards, which are like ten year old rossignals that they probably haven't waxed in years. it's rediculous. looking forward to getting this and trying it out in breck over spring break.

If you only get out a few times a year why not just rent a Burton Cruiser from Breeze ski rental

All kidding aside, I have a 3 year old artifact and it goes anywhere I really need it to at any speed, sometimes it's just a little more work. If you can ride it will work just fine for you.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?
