Supply & Demand: Powder Boards

The powder just isn't stopping, and who can complain? If you aren't dialed in with a pow setup yet, we've narrowed the field to a few of our favs, sure to make a sometimes frustrating day of keeping yourself afloat, simpler than ever. A little less talk and a lot more action. It's time to make your biggest pow slash yet.

Nitro – The Gun


Nitro brings us The Gun, a killer looking swallow tail that is sure to boggle your mind when plowing through pow stashes. At 181cm, the size alone will make people blush. The tip-to-tail poplar wood it gives you the perfect amount of flex for ultimate feel. The S-Gullwing camber is the ultimate combo for looseness and control in all terrain. It's not for every day but when the time is right you will know what board to grab.

Burton – Fish


Designed by Terje with help from long-time board master JG, the Fish is one of the smoothest and fastest powder slaying sticks on the market. Complete with Burton's S-Rocker to help easily float and turn in powder. With unlimited stance options thanks to the Channel system, the Fish's swallow tail and Infinite Ride tech make for a powder experience with ultimate pop, and a reliable feel from day one to fifty. [$600]

Jones Snowboards – The Hovercraft


Named the dream powder board, Jones Snowboards' The Hovercraft will make you feel light and free on your feet. Ideal for "powder, chop and crud" The Hovercraft is stamped with one of the most well-known names in backcountry snowboarding – Jeremy Jones. Available only in a 156cm, The Hovercraft will make you feel as stable as riding a 178cm, due to its directional rocker shape and blunted nose. [$400]

Lib Tech – Travis Rice Banana Hammock


Designed by another powder slayer, Mr. Travis Rice, the Banana Hammock is a twin, full rocker powder board made specifically for those "too deep" days. With full tip-to-tail rocker, this board makes it a cinch to ride switch. Add in correct sandwich for low spin weight and you'll be boosting off cliffs and spinning switch in no time. [$660]

Salomon – Sick Stick


With its tapered twin shape for pow freestyling mastery, the Sick Stick, is known as Salomon's all-around freestyle delight. Add in bamboo and rubber suspension to protect the edges and provide increased power distribution and you've got one of the best powder boards money can buy. [$500]

K2 – Turbo Dream


Made to move mountains, K2's Turbo Dream will "float through anything, spring over chunkier, land without impact and ride better than the pros!" Sound too good to be true? It's not. Try one for yourself and feel more in control in powder and everywhere else on the mountain, than ever before. Built with All-Terrain Rocker to create effortless float and a 4000 Sintered Base for fast response and ease of turning, the Turbo Dream may just be the board you've been dreaming about. [$480]
