All-Mountain Board for beginner-intermediate
Boot size= 10 or 11
Riding style= All mountain - mostly groomers with some powder thrown in.
Your location of riding= Vail, Colorado
So I'm planning to start riding again at least 2-3 times a year. I have little to no interest in jumps or anything freestyle oriented. I just want to ride blacks and powder with my friends. I'd say "charging steeps" sounds fun although I'm not 100% sure what that is. Anyway, I'm going to go up and rent a board for a couple days before buying, so I'm wondering what specs I should be looking for. I get that directional is probably good since I have no desire to switch at all. Should I be looking for camber or rocker? I've googled those terms, read everything availible on these forums, and I still have no clue how big the differences really are. A lot of the boards on the christysports.com site (where I plan on renting) don't even indicate whether they are camber or rocker.
The short version is I need an all-mountain board for tackling the back bowls and off trail on Vail Mountain. Any advice is appreciated.
