Board: Snofisk Beluga

Size: 165

Camber Option: Backfoot camber with Snofisk Rocker. Traditional camber at the back of the board and rocker in the nose.

Bindings: K2 Indy

Stance: 21.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 195

Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: A mix of blue skies, some clouds, cold temps, pockets of fresh snow, perfectly groomed runs, and some rutted out tree lines.

Flex: Stiff. There’s no denying this board is a stiffer board with the carbon in it. You do get a directional flex that is slightly and I mean ever so slightly softer in the nose that stiffens back up all the way through the tail. There’s very little torsional flex to it which means you’re driving this thing hard!

Stability: This board is smooth! I don’t mean damp and dead, I just mean smooth. You might feel some micro vibrations, but you’re not going to feel like you’re going to die when you go balls out. In trees that’s about the only place that this thing is not ideal in part due to its size and lack of torsional flex. It’s in trees that it does get bounced around because you’re transitioning around so much.

Ollies/Pop: There’s pop but not an insane amount of it. This board loads up off the back foot and snaps when you need it to, but once again, not overly poppy.

Butterability: I wouldn’t even bother unless you find some steep and deep powder to try it in.

Carving: So the way this board is designed you can drive it off the front foot. Which is unique because it’s back foot dominate camber. This lets you steer this thing at mach 10 speeds through a turn and push it to the limit. Long hard drawn out carves are where it shines the most, but it’s not a slouch when you have to do those short quick ones either, it just requires more drive and energy.

Rider in Mind: The big mountain pow charger or someone that is going to just rip hard carves everywhere.

Personal Thoughts: Well the first thing I will tell you is, do not ride trees with this if they’re really tight. Other than that go balls to the wall and send it. Just let this board rip and leave a line of destruction in your path because this board holds an edge and just wants to carve the whole slope. This is possibly my new favorite carving hard charger I’ve been on.
