the midlife is a mid wide, with carbon between the binders, indoors has the carbon pushed farther out towards the tip and tail.

If you want a board from CAPiTA for charging the mountain and riding deeps, the BD is really the best choice. The Stair is a jib/park board. A great board but will leave you wanting more is you're hard charging.

Other boards too look at that fit you needs are the K2 TurboDream, Ride Highlife, Rome Agent, Salomon Answer, or a Nitro Team Gullwing. The Agent and Team are a little more geared toward freestyle than the other three. All will handle the whole mountain well, but those two will handle park better than the other three and the BD.

I rode the mid-life 155 for a season and liked it as a park board. Handles the rest of the mountain with ease.
