Default Favorite conditions?

What's you're favoite snowboarding conditions?
Do you like corduroy with sun, powder with white out or powder with sun?

Personally ill take what I can get, but I do check conditions before I go to to the mountain.
I refuse to snowboard in slush or ice.

Living in Ohio with small vertical feet and a short and shitty season, I will ride anything because it is all I can get and I'm gonna get some! I do think being able to ride in all kinds of conditions does help with being a better overall rider (or so I tell myself when taking turns on over crowded slopes with bullet-proof ice or wet corn).

I really don't think I have a favorite condition. I do love smooth and fast groomers. Getting those first runs in the early a.m. when it is fast corduroy and the slopes are empty. I also have a blast at the end of the day when things are all chopped up and I'm just playing in the piles all the way down. Then again, I did maybe a dozen glade/powder runs when out west the last time and to say I had a perma-grin the rest of the day would be an understatement.

As an east coaster I like it whenever it's anything but bullet proof. A few (like 2-4) inches of pow on top of corduroy puts a smile on my face as I like to bomb. As MeanJoe mentioned when there's a nice dump when I'm out west I'll be in the trees all day grinning from ear to ear.

Anything fresh.

That being said, dust over frozen coral reef isn't much fun.

I prefer powder while it's puking snow out. So much fun.
