Just a note, the Peacekeeper is basically the replacement for the Gyrator where the Ultra is a back country intended tweak of a Turbo.
Good reference point. Still don't know which to pull the trigger on... What should I do, Nivek? 58 twinish set back pow/freestyle more versatile slayer with all mtn-capabilities, or 59 directional pow raper slightly less versatile pow-specific board with minimal but still decent all-mtn aspects

Unless you're getting it for the sole purpose of days deeper than 2 feet just get the Ultra. It's more versatile and will still float like a boat in deep snow.

Or just get the new 147 Salomon Powder Snake.

I'd love to get a hovercraft or similar board for pow only but after last season I can't bet on it.

Next year will be good to add one to my quiver.

Yeah the ultra dream seems to be very in line with my current gyrator, burton juice wagon, or other powder twin.


The peacekeeper seems like an awesome option as well if you want more of the jones "point it and go" attitude. I do love the nose on it.
