where from Italy ? i have a good friend in Livigno !!
.. and had an Impreza from 1999 some years ago ! loved that car !
now i am thinking about selling my Carrera for an STI 05

Born and raised in Rome... I used to ski back then... Then I tried an old Lib Tech in 98 before leaving... bam!
Love the WRX too.. 160 K and counting. Changed the brake pads once.
Go for it! I'm not crazy about the new 14 WRX/STI design.

Jones Flagship or Rossi XV do great in powder and great with the harder surfaces too. (don't be afraid to size up with either of these because controlling the board feels like it's shorter than true size).
yes, thank you !

i prefer the Cartel over the Diode at the moment, right !
...looking for a Cartel LTD , but probably no chance to find one ....

i think the 156 should be fine for my size and weight ! ??

Or you can look at a J Jones Flagship, that is more an all-mountain board.

I tend to get up there early and snatch the untracked snow... and switch to the camber board later... if I still have legs left.

here in Europe you sometimes have to do the hard work first and ride down some icy stuff to get to big untracked powder .... best example over here is La Grave !

have U ever ridden a Banana Hammock or a "Jones" Board ??

i have a Travis Rice 2012 in 157 and 164,5 for Alpine Terrain but looking for something that is more easy in pow !
...and the question was: is the Fish more versatile with a stiffer binding ? or is it against the determination of the Board to much ??


kind regards !
