I'm heading to Zermatt in late November. I'm not sure which board to bring, flexible or stiff board?

Thanks! :)

What's your riding style? What boards do you have?

Currently, we get heavy snowfalls in Alps. Resorts plan early opening. As Z is high altitude, I expect it to have a nice base already. I'd bring a freeride board with decent nose as you will be able to ride pow if the weather pattern stays.

Not sure how I'd classify my riding style. More of a clean riding style...not aggressive ☺

The choice is between Flow Era, Flow Chill or Burton Process.

Is Z anything like Hintertux, Stubai or Samnaun? I've ridden those a few times.

Danke sehr.

Don't know those boards.

Z is big :). Lots of different groomers. You can do steep runs, very long rather narrow runs, endless medium pitch runs (which I usually just straight line, but maybe you like them for easygoing riding :dunno:). Check out Cervinia side, too.

DO NOT GO TO the yellow marked run from Stockhorn if you're not a Buckelpiste addict. It may be intruding that there's an ungroomed run... but... it's not fresh you find there... that entire steep face is an endless mogul hell (been there. No fun, lol).
