NS Revolver in CO - first trip west

Am i gonna wish i had a bit of a stiffer board when i go to CO in Feb???

Going to Keystone,A basin, and Breck and have never been out west...here on the east coast ive only ridden my Ride Kink and my NS Revolver, both are a lil small for my size (156cm and 200lbs) but i like a smaller board, so thats not really my concern...

but when i step it up and am dropping much bigger lines than ive ever seen in CO, do you think ill wish i had a stiffer board??

thanks

yeah if you really want to bomb some runs then yeah you will wish you did. It is more the rider then the board I took a 155 parkstar (175 lbs) out almost everyday I was there lat year and was fine. On the plus side you can demo some new boards if you want to see what a stiffer board can do for all mtn.

im not much of a 'bomber'...sure ill be shredding some steeps and what not, but prolly be on the lookout for any side hits or drops the whole way down...i feel confident on my boards of choice, even when 'bombing' my lil hill, so if you feel it is def more the rider, i think ill be alright...obviously id be a lil better off on a stiffer board for the big mountain, but i dont ride big mountains enough to justify purchasing anything stiffer


thanks for the reply readimag

Last year, I took my Revolver out in the slackcountry and bombed many runs at Powder Mtn. At the time, I was 205...I've dropped some weight since and I had no problems. The length of mine is 159 I believe. It road the pow well, handled the steeps, etc. When the powder gets choppy it can be a little tougher though since it isn't on the stiffer side. You should be fine.

You'll be fine. I ride my 59 Revolver all over the place.

It's going to be a hell of a lot better than your Kink would be.
