Should I take another board?
Hi all -
I'm heading to Canada for the first time this year, plan on heading to Banff area resorts, Revelstoke and Apex Mtn.
I'm 6'2", weight about 78kg (172 pounds), and am intermediate-advanced rider.
I ride a Rome Slash 158, pretty much for the all mtn freestlye aspect of the board. Here in Australia it is fine, handles pretty much everything that I care to ride. I rode it in 10-15cm of Aussie powder last year, without the bindings set back, and I thought it handled it pretty well!
So...should I take another board? Something a bit longer and with less flex? I'm not really interested in riding really steep terrain, I usually steer clear of that, however I am into riding in trees, and of course, powder when I get the chance!
I have an old (2004) ride Mecca 163 that really shreds the groomers, its pretty stiff and good for just flying around the mountain...but I think I might try and get something else.
Anyways - thoughts?
