    Hi, I'm a beginner looking into buying a board and I came across this for 50 euro: (link removed by mod) It's a second hand, 143cm, Burton 42 twin. What do you think? Would it be a good choice for a 5'4" beginner approx 60kg?

    Hi guys! Title says it all. Which of these 2 resorts have better/longer runs for beginners? Out of these 2, I've only been to Snow Summit, and Summit Run is pretty good as far as I know.
