Oh shut it with the "locals" attitude. The op has already chosen a spot. I seriously doubt you are going to see a huge increase in crowds from the huge uptick in international travel. Keep in mind these are the people that keep the bullwheels spinning for you. You can always do what I did and quit using ski areas. Crowds, ski area problems...

I'am still checking for a good freeride board, but i probably will buy the Burton Custom X (2013). If anyone has suggestions??? let me know
Hey Sir G, I have been riding a GNU Bully Goat this season and have found it an awesome all round freeride board. It can handle powder quite well. I was riding up to 4ft powder and it handled very well and I found it was good through the trees and crud and even handles groomers well. I noticed you have been boarding for a while but I don't know your level. The Billy Goat seems to respond better the harder you charge. I also ride a Never Summer Premier 1 but found it won't handle the powder as well as the Billy Goat. I also have a Jones Hovercraft split for back country tours.
I have noticed quite a few threads on here discussing boards also with good reviews by forum members. Take the time to read through them and do some research so that you get a board that will do what you want.
Happy riding and make sure you post back on your experience in SA.
