How does one come to the conclusion that the Highlife is all mountain freestyle? Its pretty strictly a freeride deck.
The BSOD might be a quiver killer for some, but its not a freeride deck for anyone not sponsored by Capita. Or probably shouldnt be at least, its just not stiff enough to be freeride in my experience.
Mtn Twin is a good deck, but the Flagship, or for 2014 the Aviator, is a better choice from Jones.
PYL is definitely a good pick.
My pick would be the K2 Ultra Dream. Crazy float, fun stability, great edgehold as long as you know how to use your edges, and nimble. I had a Blast riding th 161. Size up though, cause those tips make the EE shorter than average. Normally I'd be on a 56 in that type of board, the 58 would be ideal, the 61 would be stupid fast in deep snow. So for everything at 180, go for the 61.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
