riding deep pow is an acquired skill, renting a pow board will make the day easier and more enjoyable.

its not as simple as does it float or sink. its about making it through the day vs having lots of fun.

I'll focus on the last part

If we are going to Snowbasin is it best to look for rental there or in SLC?
Would I be expecting Burton Fish as only option or do they usually have more selection?

To each their own, the FISH is a great choice, myself and two of my friends all ride the 160 FISH. The FISH rips every thing from 4" to 2' no problem. Originally I went to a shop and grabbed the 162(?) Mullet, while grabbing my wallet I was carrying on in some small talk, how I couldn't decide if I want the Mullet or the FISH and the guy behind the counter said "if you're picking between those two, I would definitely go with the FISH".

Check out TheHouse.com, I bought a year old new FISH for $279, no tax, no shipping.

You'll have a wider selection of boards looking around SLC, and probably a better rental/demo price. Milosport and Salty Peaks are both right next to each other, and pretty decent shops, so you might want to check them out or give them a call about demo/rentals. If nothing else you can compare their selection and cost to what you'd be able to get at Snowbasin.

Milosport
Salty

Some of the other SLC riders might have some other suggestions. I've only been in SLC for about a year, but I bought some Raiden Blackhawks at a huge discount at Milo and they were a super cool store.

Thanks! I will for sure take a look in these stores.
