I picked up a 160 wide, I use to ride a regular custom 162 09....This board kills it in all conditions (ice, fast groomers, chop) but really shines in powder. Just took it out in 30 inches of pow in Snowshoe this past weekend. Makes snowboarding effortless in pow and incredibly fun. I've had it out all over the country, from icy east coast (Snowshoe, Wintergreen) to deep Vail and Whistler powder. Also handles the park just fine. I'm a full believer in the rocker technology, the turbo dream is amazing. get it now.
