Been doing lots of online research on this topic recently. Based simply on reading the Union Chargers seem to be as stiff and responsive as just about anything.

Thanks. I guess I have only seen the harder parts of the mountain. Compared to PCMR, Canyons, Brighton, etc Snowbird seemed less kid friendly. Thanks for the feedback.

I got into a debate this weekend with a friend about how kid friendly (under 10 years old) snowbird is. I love the bird, but I would never take my 9 and 6 year olds there. The place is just too...

I would say your comment is generally right, but I doubt you really lose carve-ability with the raptor- just a different feel. Neither feel is better IMO- just personal preference. For a freeride...

From your choices and your riding the Heritage sounds best to me. It is more of a hybrid rocker/camber. Custom X is not the board to be learning park on. CX Is great at carving, but you will catch...

Best of luck with your decision- I just hope you rode the flying V before buying. The V is the most rockered board I have ever been on, I did not personally like it too much. While I have not ridden...
