So what’s your go to deep powder board in Utah? I live in park city and weigh 140 lbs...My list:
Amplid Singular 154 (22/23 release board)
GNU Banked Country 155
GNU Gremlin 152
Snoplanks Asym Fish 156/160
Telos Backslash 148
Telos Ranquet 156
This season I bought and tried out:
Weston Range 155
K2 Niseko Pleasures 151
Lib Tech Orca 150
The Range was a good all around board. Bought it for $250 on a whim. It's just a snowboard that does snowboard things. I thought it rode switch pretty crappy which was a surprise. I may sell it.
Niseko Pleasures is a great on piste super fun snowsurf style carver. I still own it. Not great at speed but impressive for ripping low to mid speed carves in good snow. I did get it into 2.5 to 3ft of lower angle stuff (rope drop after a couple of snow days) and honestly thought it sucked and got bogged down which was really surprising.
The Orca was great in tight trees and pow but uninspired on piste. Got rid of it after a handful of powder days. I don't enjoy powder boards that are boring on piste (I ride resort... Maybe I'd have a different point of view if sled access).
I sold my 157 Surfari (my first Amplid) which I loved in wide open bowls and on groomers. We don't have as much wide open terrain where I ride here in Utah, but I imagine that in the Alps its just a magical freeride board. It was also great on groomers, but my Penta is better so that superceded it except on variable days. The reason I sold it is that at 155lbs I felt like it took me for a ride more often in tight bumpy trees than I was comfortable with. If I was 10 or 15 lbs heavier I bet that wouldn't have been the case.
Just last week I purchased an Amplid Souly Grail 157 and a Moss Jellyfish 156. Found them both for almost half off and couldn't resist. I don't know anyone with a moss so excited to try something totally different, and as I have ridden (and love) the other three Amplid Centrifugal collection boards I wanted to try this. I get them in next week.
Ive been told that prices are going up $100 across the board next year on most brands, so if you're looking to grab something for next season now is the time. I may buy a couple others to try if I find a good deal. I'd really like to try GNUs C3 profile.
I remember reading you were like 140lbs, right? If I were you I'd look for the 153 souly and a maybe a 149 Singular (although that may be a tad small).Sounds good on comparing notes and yeah my hopes are not high. Kinda ready for biking.

140 yes... Singular? Wasn’t even really see anything that made sense when I did a Google search. Link please.I remember reading you were like 140lbs, right? If I were you I'd look for the 153 souly and a maybe a 149 Singular (although that may be a tad small).
There was one left on snowcountry.eu -- they still have a Moss Mini Long if you're eyeing the profile more than the style. I really wanted to try something unique and I figured that the Step Back Rocker that the Mini Long (and the Jellyfish) has is the most unique I was going to get rather than the Snowsurf Camber on all the other ones that were available. It was tough for me to choose the Jellyfish over the Mini Long honestly, but I ended up going for the shorter length.Where did you buy the Moss Jellyfish from? I’ve been eyeing that board for a while.
This thread just makes me want to spend money.There was one left on snowcountry.eu -- they still have a Moss Mini Long if you're eyeing the profile more than the style.
