Stone grind for spring conditions

For those with multiple boards, do you have a specific board that you ride only in the Spring? I have two boards, a K2 WWW and the cambered Burton Custom. My main driving board is the custom. I've had both for 5 and 3 years, respectively. Anyway, the most I have done for these boards is put on DIY a wax every once in a while but once it gets slushy it doesn't seem to make much of a difference. I was thinking of getting a base grind for a spring structure but I was wondering would that then adversely affect the board on non slushy days such as icy or pow days? If yes, then I am thinking of getting one with a stone grind and then leave the other one alone.

It will help a bit, but it's not going to stop the stick. Stone grind, no wax, extra summer wax, brushing, scraping, not scraping. Everyone has their method of trying to have a fast non sticky board. A lot depends on whether it's corn, mashed potatoes, groomers etc but in the end, it don't really hurt board performance too much. It can only help. Spring grind already?? I wouldn't consider until middle of April.

Just learning...

Wax with flouro and brush. Lots of coarse brush. Just forget about the horse hair when it's wet.
