Fallen Saint I ride in NC where fresh pow is rare. I would suggest a board with BTX (Banana Rocker, BTX & Magna-traction, MTX) because they are a lot better in the kind of conditions that you and I face. I ride a Skate Banana right now (previously a GNU Altered Genetics with just MTX) and it handles significantly better than a standard camber board.

The conditions in Michigan are groomed, hard pack, and icy. I don't do much park riding. Had thoughts of Burton Custom, Atomic Radon, looking for suggestions. Thank you in advance.

Could have been shuttering because you're too heavy for the board... check around there's tons of threads on this kind of thing, you might want to consider MTX or something similar (like NS Vario power Grip) since you ride ice.
