Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: A mix of blue and grey skies, high winds up high at times, fresh snow all over, cold temps, and perfect corduroy where there wasn’t chop and chunder.

Flex: This board has around a middle of the road flex with a slight directional take on it. This means more flex in the nose than the tail just due to it being a tapered directional board. The torsional flex is highly abundant.

Stability: All the stability is directly underfoot and even then it’s a deck you feel everything on. The nose has some serious chatter at high speeds and in variable terrain. Keep those knees bent if you decide to send it into a chowder field because you’re going to get bucked around.

Ollies: This has one of the easiest camber profiles to load up and pop with. The snap is exceptional in this board and it just wants to launch off anything in its path whether a fallen over skier or a roller. So load it up and boost.

Pop On Jumps: The width gives some stability on jumps but the flex does come with some limitations so keep it to the medium line or lower in my opinion. The snap off the lip is great and just helps amplify what the jump is already doing.

Butterability: This board is so butterable. You have a giant nose to play around on and lock into all types of presses. The tail while smaller you can just shit on and let it slide sideways with ease. If you like to butter and know what you’re doing this will work well.

Jibbing: It’s fun doing a nose press on this board has you have a longer area to really press into. It just locks in and holds it to the end of the feature. With the tail being shorter you’re just sitting on the outside of your binding. Going sideways there’s more than enough give in the center of the board to let you feel locked in and able to slide any feature.

Carving: With it having a radial sidecut (best sidecut of any Salomon) it just cruises a carve like no other. It’s easy to engage off your front foot and steer the board but all the power is derived from the rear foot and tail. You can crank a deep hard carve with ease and never worry about it. Short quick set up carves or deep hard laid out carves it has you covered.

Rider in Mind: Party boarding all mountain freestyle guy.

Personal Thoughts: Did I need to ride this board again? No, nothing has changed but it’s a hot ticket item so here we are. I did finally ride it in some deeper pow and it floated exceptionally well. This is a board for doing it all with a party boarding mindset. If you want to turn the whole mountain into your skatepark here you go.
