It basically fits exactly what you are looking for. Its a board that makes you want to give it your all. It's precise and very fast. Just point, commit to your technique, strong edge pressure and you can rip thru any crud, ice, bumps with confident. Edge hold is so good and the board absorbs any chatter really well. It's not really even THAT stiff in my opinion, and isn't that demanding to ride once you get the hang of it. It's stiff, but also flexible torsionally to give lots of board characteristic for pumping carves and ollies n nollies. The carbon tail is rock solid if you need to stomp some big shit, just slam the tail down and it instantly absorbs a lot of your energy and let's you ride away cleanly. The carbon sintered base is extremely fast and the board just wants you to go fast. Did I mention this board is fast? Like coast thru all cat tracks and beat skiers kind of fast. Floats in powder well and just a dream when there's pillows. I love to use the nose as like a shovel or sword and cut the snow back and forth, very satisfying for me. One con I would say is that it's not as nimble in trees. So I've had some difficulty controlling it in tight speeds, and also partly because it wants to go fast, which is the opposite of what my risk taking spider senses tells me to do in tight trees. I rip groomers on it all the time, just carves em up super nice. Sometimes I bomb groomers and I'm sad the run is over too quickly..
