which board for this kind of riding?
hop off the chairlift, walk up the mountain a bit more, strap-in, hit a narrow, extremely icy chute exit into a powder bowl, carve/air on a few wind lips, maybe land switch, take a tree run through some deep powder, maybe 50-50 a branch , exit onto a super steep hard-packed/icy face, work my way down that as fast as possible, into a groomed intermediate run that i might ride switch for fun, carve up the groomed intermediate terrain park, grab a melon off a kicker, slash turn on the lip of the quarter pipe, 50-50 a mini-box/rail, ride back into the woods and exit at the groomed convergence of all the runs at the bottom of the slope.
i can't tell whether you call this back country, aggressive, all mountain, freestyle, freeride, or what.
what board screams out for this type of riding? the key obviously is that it has to ride groomers, ice and powder excellently, be decent at riding switch and have the pop, speed, and carve of a traditional camber
