Ride Slackcountry

I saw a 2010 slackcountry on sale for $380 so I did a little research and it seems to be mostly positive reviews. I want a board that will be good for deep powder but will be able to handle pretty well on groomers. Anyone have experience with this board? Love the graphics on it.

The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive Ride Slackcountry with Delta’s a closer look that's the review I have of it.

I picked up a 161 Slackcountry last season and loved it. I had the opportunity to ride it in everything from 41" of fresh to crusty week old snow. Where it worked the best was in the deeper stuff. The Highrize really helps out in keeping your nose up on plane above the snow. I also noticed less leg burn than usual. If you are not use to riding a reverse camber board then it will take a little getting use to on the groomers. I would typically only ride this board right after a storm. During the rest of the season I typically rode my Machete.

Cool, sounds like what I'm looking for right now. I need a good board for that deep stuff! Now we just need some deep stuff, damn summer.

Granted I only put one day on my Slackcountry last season (late season super sale purchase) I LOVE this board. Great float in the deep stuff, yet still pretty stable on tracked out areas or groomers for how much rocker it has. I wouldn't recommend it at full price, but it looks like you've got a pretty good deal on it. If this is pretty much your dedicated pow board, I'd 100% recommend it.

I bought it! I just couldn't pass it up. There's no way i would pay the full $650 for any board. This is going to be my pow board and my sl-r will be my everyday board. Can't wait! I want snow now!!!

$380 is a freakin steal on that board! I paid just slightly more than that last spring.

On a side note, how are you diggin that SL-R? I'm pretty sure I'm buying the 2011 SL as my main stick.....

I have the 2010 sl-r and i love it. It is perfect for a main board, because it will do pretty much anything you want to. I really can't say enough good things about it. Get it and I guarantee you won't regret it.
