This board is AMAZING. I have used it on crusty snow, slushy snow, packed powder, deep fluffy powder, etc. It excels in all conditions. The reverse camber plus amptek is an amazing combination. Great in powder, stable on groomers or hardpack, absolutely blasts thru crud, which on Mt Hood happens pretty early in the day. I have two other boards...a Burton Malolo with Cartel EST bindings, and a GNU Altered Genetics with Union Force bindings. My favorite snowboard is the Rossignol Angus (162MW). My favorite thing about it (aside from the sick graphics by Alex Pardee) is the consistency and smoothness of turn initiation on it -- smooth, deliberate and predictably precise. I love this board. Rossignol nailed the recipe on this one!
PS, Backcountry is equally superb -- great customer service, product selection and super speedy shipping. It's easy to tell they are trying to be the best and do things differently.
