This board is sick. You wont have any problems hittin rails then heading up and carving the pow. The board never catches edges and is very forgiving. I have ridden this board well over 8 times this on all terrain. Handles well on ice, packed powder, fresh snow ect. Whatever you throw at the board it will handle it. The bottom does scratch easily and the board is not built to last. Took a spill in the trees and the top layer of the board is peeling up. Will most likely replace the board at the end of the season. But overall a very solid board for beginner-intermediate riders that are looking to hit the pow and park.
