jdang307 Are you looking at the 2013 or 2014 happy hour? Two different boards.

Naturesabre well mtn high is a very freestyle oriented mtn, features to hit everywhere really so if you want to utilize that availability to its fullest the happy hour would be nice. especially since you ride primarily mountain high you won't need an all mountain that has a strong emphasis on float.

Season pass holder at Mtn High, usually do a few days at Bear, a few at Mammoth, and usually make a few powder runs in different states since like you said, snow isnt the best here.

I agree on camber board for good edge hold, less wash outs.. however, Ive read the Happy Hour is pretty good also... Thanks for the responce..

Still on the fence.. 50/50...

You will be fine on anything from 154-160. I would say 156 is a good place to start.

Advice needed: 2013 Burton Aftermath vs K2 Happy Hour

Hello all,

I have it narrowed down to these 2 boards, similar and price and I already have compatible Channel Bindings.

5"7 175, size 10 Boots. I ride mostly here in socal i.e groomers.

My riding style is all mountain versatile, alot of crusing at speed, carving, I also hit jumps and boxes..

Any thoughts?
