Looking for community feedback here...

I’m an intermediate-level rider progressing on jumps and side hits. I am looking for the perfect All-Mountain board that can explode off the jumps along the way. Michigan resorts are usually icy groomers and/or uneven terrain.

Which of these two boards should I invest in?

*The Never Summer seems to generate more buzz, but I’m wondering if that’s because YES is a lesser known brand? But the reviews are insane for bith

The standard is one of the best all mountain decks I’ve ever ridden. Bought it on a whim this year and was absolutely blown away. Such an incredible deck

Never Summer's are damppp. Heard many good things about the Proto, thinking about going with the Proto synthesis for my next all mountain board. Currently on a 2015 Cobra and it rips everything. Proto Slinger is going to be more park oriented, one of my buddies used to rip the Funslinger on just about anything, park / powder days.

I've never ridden a Yes, heard good things though. I think they are produced by Nidecker, i've had a few of there other boards (Nidecker that is) in the past (Rome / Slash) and enjoyed them. Either way, will likely be a solid choice.
