Well what you got as custom is probably what I was referring to as a pow board than carved. There's tons of those and they are rad.
I have 2 boards sort of like that. They do everything and it's what I ride the most :
Duoraz and Landlord. Both great on groomers and carving, both pow boards. D better on bigger faces and LL better in trees. But overall.... I can pack either to any trip and it'll do; then bring a Fish in case I get lucky with 30cm+

Pow in the Alps!
Yeeeha! Another big snowstorm Tue-Fri and picture perfect bluebird today!
Beautiful deep late April pow .
Again on Schilthorn. The scenery doesn't get old...
Oh... btw... 'twas the 2nd day on the test custom build board, the 156 long 23.9cm narrow camber deck which carves so great... she's also a blast in pow! Even - or especially - in heavily rutted stuff. soooo... sorry @F1EA ... I really don't need a "pow" board
I so love these late season days. Ride pow till afternoon, get down to the valley and sit in the garden in a t-shirt in warm spring conditions. Can't beat such days!

Yeah, I can see from the angle it's not the Lauberhorn now.
My wifes first ski lesson was on the Lauberhorn, she kept looking for the blue runs down, haha! (Famous for its World Cup Downhill race).
This is a photo looking down on the Lauberhorn from the top of the Jungrau railway station. In my previous post the Lauberhorn is the foreground peak and the station is on the col hidden by the Lauberhorn, that shot was taken from just above top right in this photo. The cog railway leaves Kleine Scheidegg station (this photo, bottom right) goes through the north face of the Eiger, hangs a u-ey, goes under the Monch and ends at the Jungfrau at 11,000ft. It's over 100 years old, gotta hand it to these Swiss when it comes to tunnels under mountains.

Wow, that's an incredible bargain pass price! Since Saas Fee launched a dumping price pass last year, it seems to stir pricing politics up. I hope we will see something similar in the near future in our region. As season pass holders, we get day passes half priced in some resorts collaborating with out home mtn... but it's nothing compared to that Magic Pass...

Lauberhorn? Nice view of some real mountains.
We've just bought a "Magic Pass" 2018 season ticket for Western Switzerland, a bargain at CHF359 ($361), unfortunately it doesn't include the Jungfrau ski region.

|neliconcept||Got back the other day from my trip to Davos and Zermatt. Davos had more snow cover at elevation giving me more pow runs. Zermatt was a bit thin in places and I took a nice core shot to my Branch. Visibility was bad in the afternoon as well as a full day in Davos but I still had an amazing time! I may try some Prizm HI pink lenses next time I come in contact with bad visibility above tree line. The Yellow/Blue weren't getting it done.|
