Flat4Wagon Anything with magne-traction. It's damn good on ice.

slyder We have mostly man made and very heavily used hills here and they get icy fast. I had a LibTech regular camber board last year and yes my edges were always sharp. My LibTech Skate Banana handles much better on the icy hills here. I am able to get much deeper turns and the control feels great on those less than optimal days.

I'm happy with it and our Midwest winters aren't the best, but it's what we have. This board has helped me ride our local hills.

Just my experience like you asked for. Good luck on the your decision and let us know what you chose.

Extremo My All mtn board is a Nitro Misfit and the thing rips...but it is also a twin. I'd recommend the Nitro Pantera 157 or 160 as a directional board. You def won't be disappointed.

Extremo Any board with a sharp edge will hold the same as magnetraction. What size boot do you have? so we can deterrmine waist width, and do you do any switch riding?

volboy23 I have heard lots of Good things about libtechch and gnu with magnatraction. I am curious what other boards people will throw out there. I live on the ice coast and am going to be looking for a new board next year.

WHOisDAN Have no fear - magne-traction turns ice into powder.
