I've been reading mixed reviews on the Skate Banana for the all-around performance. I ride out west (British Columbia) about 5-10 days a year, and spend the most of my riding time in NY state, Ontario (10-20 days combined) and Quebec (5-10 days). I've heard that the Banana is a great all mountain board for the pow and the tree runs out west, but not so great on the icy slopes of the east.
How does it handle on the typically bulletproof slopes of NY and ON?
How is it at high speeds? I've heard of problems with chatter and extra difficulty on corduroy.
