I regularly hit mid 40's; on a good day with no folks mid 50's but I don't have much desire to go faster. But we don't have wide open perfectly groomed runs.

only gone around mid to high 40s mph using a new board on my first trip this season. i would like to hit in the constant high 50s range someday but i can't do that at my local hill. it'll be at one of my boarding trip to a larger mountain. i dont normally tuck or crouch, and my weight helps me goes down faster . i'm not afraid of falling but more likely afraid of crashing into someone else, so i slow down if i approach someone close.

we all have our own limit of how fast is fast based on your own experience. i enjoy going fast on my motorbike so i'm kinda used to the wind and speed.

The more wide open the run the easier it is to go fast. Seems like a no-brainer but I'm mainly talking about when there are no trees or features anywhere near you it is hard to reference your speed. Think of driving 90 on a desert highway with nothing but flat land around you. Almost seems like you're crawling.

A good snowboard that isn't going to chatter is good too, lol.

That's crazy. I'm good for low 40's... anything faster than that seems out of control.

^that was just on comedy central Saturday when i got home from boarding... somehow I hadn't seen it this season, just a great holiday flick.

I learned to ride with skiers, still rid mostly with skiers, and a few are pretty darn good so I try to ride fast to keep up. Usually in the high 30 to high 40s range.. but I am a very careful rider so tend to check my speed when others are around. Since I have started using one of those GPS apps 54 has been my top end on an empty early day this year. Felt pretty fast to me.
