riding trees on long boards is doable, but then try it on a short board. a million times more fun. I'm 6'2 and my 52 Root is the answer for trees. Hell, even my 48 spliff is great

If the run was trees from top to bottom I would agree to an extent.
Rarely that is the case though which is why I like boards that float as well as perform on packed snow.

That's exactly my thought. I need a board that will be pow-oriented... but can also perform on the groomed slopes.


And Argo, though I haven't seen or ridden through CO trees, I can guarantee you that they are more open than the WV trees I've ridden! haha.

Here's a video from some of our mildly spaced trees, it's steeper than it looks. My son riding with a local reporter

Looks very similar to some of our runs, except pretty much all our trees are evergreens.

I know this is a long vid, but it shows what some of our treed runs are like! This was on my 159 T7, the 160 Virus does a LOT better at this type of riding...
