Took out the Burton Hero to Baker today to find about a foot of powder in some places but some of the main runs still had some hard pack from time to time. The board felt very soft and it was difficult to absorb some of the chop. It also washed out a few times when trying to turn at higher speeds. As far as the powder it did pretty well with the exception that it still gave some rear leg burn. Didnt head into the park at all but hit a few natural jumps and such and it had pretty good pop and landed smoothly. I would only go with the Hero if you are looking to do about 70%-80% park. If you ride more all mountain definitely go with a stiffer board
