I'm looking into a all mountain/freeride deck. I live in NYC so I mostly shred in NY or PA and once in a while VT. I was looking into next years 156/158 Goliath, 156/159 Jam or 158 Omni. I'm leaning toward the Goliath or Jam in 156 cause mountains here are small, icy and crowded and being 170 lbs and 5'10".
What I would like to know is how would those boards handle ice because that's a big thing here. (Heard that it's a good idea to down size a board size to have extra grip.) I have heard that TBT is a little sketchy on icy conditions.
Also, which board would be a good match for me. I just want to go fast and yet still cruise around my slow buddies.
