The better boarders can ride most boards in any condition. Most snowboarders never develop skils to carve across ice. Magnetraction for us is just a must.
So congrates…
I'm progressing not quit there yet… still like mag

if you insist on one board, most agree magnatraction actually works on steep ice...well, as good as one board can on ice.

For those wondering what board I went with I bought a Never Summer SL 158. I found a new (non blemish one online and a competitor price matched them) for $362 US dollars. Not sure if its against the rules or bad form to post the web sites so if anyone wants to know where I got it please feel free to PM me.

Once again thanks for everyone's help with the recommendations, they helped out a lot.
Let me know how it is! Hmm.. I'm starting to see why never summer boards have the most reviews on here. Granted I've never ridden anything other than a few burton boards and this never summer, I don't how know much better a board could perform over this never summer.
