I really want to hop on a Warpig but haven't had a chance. You don't want a Lumberjack to ride everyday in Michigan. Not IMO.
I own an LJ and live in Michigan, can attest to this. It's not that you *can't* ride it every day here, I just don't *want* to. I break out the Lumberjack if the snow is good, otherwise it's usually taking a back seat to my IPP Harrow. But, I ride a fair amount of park and though the LJ is capable there, I just personally don't like wide boards in the park. And I prefer camber for park riding, also.

I wouldn't want to ride tracked out and/or icy, windswept Bohemia on the Lumberjack. Deep Bohemia is a different story.
Nice! Thanks man, any ride time on the Pig?? Thats what I'm going with now. Will be in Bohemia a good bit.

Cool, I am definitely not a steep hard charger kind of guy. But I will be in some places with pow up to 4 feet.
I would never waste a pow day on a war pig.

That's pretty much it. You can ride any board any day anywhere, but if you have a quiver, there are better tools for the job.

I basically use my Lumberjack for storm days where visibility sucks and I'm going to primarily he riding relatively mellow protected terrain in powder conditions and those 3-6" "powder" days because it is definitely a board that can maximize the fun in those conditions. That's where the Lumberjack fits in for me.

Would you ride the pig in 1-2 foot powder?

I'm just trying to figure out if the pig should be my one board or if I should look back at the merc, coda or flight attendant. I narrowed it down to the pig because everyone who has ridden it says it Excels in all the things I'm looking for.

That's exactly what I felt the Pig was good for. But after getting a slush slasher, it does all that and is even more fun, other than being able to ride switch.

Rode the Warpig at Bohemia (and Red/White) and it was great.
FTR also rode my regular daily deck (Whiteout160W at that time), and it was great.
That's my feeling on the Warpig.
All mountain short fat.

Would you recommend the pig as a daily board for what I described in my first post?

Just putting my impression out there.
Personally wouldn't want it for a daily driver even though it can do it.
Personally didn't like it as a quiver board for the same reason (haha)

If I had to get rid of all of my boards but 1, I would keep the Warpig. It's versatility is where it shines, and for some likely where it faulters. There will always be better boards more specialised to certain conditions, but for where and how I ride the pig covers all based very well. I'm comfortable charging steep and deep lines on it, dropping some mellow cliffs, darting through trees, and then hitting a few park laps. I haven't ridden any other boards I could say I'd be comfortable doing all of the above on. I've hit the park on a Custom X, and I've bombed some gnarly runs on a Huck Knife. That doesn't mean I was comfortable while doing it, whereas on The Pig I am.

1 have war pig 5ft 6in 165# 10 boot. The pig is a good board very versatile. I am not an hard charger but i carve aggressively. I can boot the board out. That’s really laying it over elbow and 2 hand drags. It is a fun board. I can ride switch also on it. I have the 154 which IMO is perfect for what I do would not want a smaller size. Haven’t been in deep pow a foot or so no problems. Yea a versatile board. GOOD LUCK BRO FROM COLORADO 🏂🤙🏻🏄🏼‍♂️😎🏂

Squeezing my feet into smaller boots with a reduced footprint really helped with booting out for me. I went from size 13 to size 11 with some insoles, heel wedges and molding. If you could squeeze into a 9.5 or even a 9, you'd boot out less. An aggressive performance fit isn't for everyone, and it takes some tinkering to get it right.
