Your big-mountain weapon.
The Burton Supermodel Snowboard loves nothing more than a waist-deep powder day, but it handles every inch of the mountain without an issue. Burton’s combination of a tapered shape and twin flex gives it the versatility that other pow boards only dream of.
- Twin flex lets you charge or land switch with confidence
- Tapered shape and 2.5cm setback gives you serious float in the pow
- Channel binding connection works with EST and 3D bindings
- Sintered N2O WFO base for serious speed and bomber durability
- Pro-Tip construction reduces swing weight on rotations
- Carbon I-Bean reinforcements increase pop

What is the big difference between the Supermodel and the Supermodel X? I'm looking for a powder board, but a straight powder board (like the Malolo that I've been looking at) doesn't seem ideal for the Pacific Northwest. I guess I'm looking for a powder board that can still handle harder packed and groomers as well.
Also, what size should I be looking for? I'm 6'1", 185 lbs.....
The Supermodel X has carbon vapor skin. This reduces weight and adds response. The supermodel has a flex rating of 5 and the X's is 7. A lot lighter and snappier. I would recommend you getting the regular supermodel. It will be better suited for all types of conditions. The 159 sounds like it would be the correct size choice. The tapered tail will help out in powder when you do ride it so don't worry about that. This board is awesome, you will love it.

If i buy one of this, what binding should i buy if my boots are size 10 ?
I recommend a Burton EST binding vs a regular binding with the adaptor plate. With a size 10 you'll fit best in a size large. I would say go with something like the cartel est. It has a stiff flex and will work well on an all mtn/pow board like this. If you don't mind spending money also look at the CO2. To say a bit of money over these two bindings the Mission est bindings are a great value. They lack some of the bells a whistles of the more expensive models, but they have a medium flex and get the job done.
Justin is right on point.
