Expert Reviews

  • Favorite Terrain: Trees and powder

"The Jones Mountain Twin is an aggressive directional twin, all-mountain freestyle snowboard. It’s good for the aggressive rider and it’s going to handle a lot of different terrain well.

"This board has a ton of energy. The camber profile really slingshots you out of turns. I felt the turn initiation was really good. When I locked in that edge, I could really just drive this board through the whole carve. I honestly couldn’t really think of any terrain this board would not be good for. It truly is just an awesome, do-it-all board. You can take it virtually anywhere.

"I would recommend this snowboard to the intermediate rider trying to step up his game, all the way up to the expert rider that wants one board that can really be versatile over the mountain."

  • Favorite Terrain: Trees

"My first impression on this board was that I was super impressed with how confidently I could ride it on my first run. On my first run, I was actually filming another expert who was testing a board, and when you’re filming, it’s kind of difficult to pay attention to what’s going on around you and underneath your feet because you’re trying to keep up with the person in front of you. And on that first run, I did not have to worry about what was happening underneath me on this board. It was smooth and confident from the get-go."

  • Favorite Terrain: Trees

"The Jones Mountain Twin has absolutely no problem with speed. It’s pretty stable. This board was a 154; it’s a little short for me and my weight, but it still felt really stable, and I really pushed it and really dug in and laid it on edge.

"The Jones Mountain Twin is really an all-mountain quiver killer. It can do virtually anything. It’s not the most ideal for park—it’s a little bit stiff, unless you’re hitting mostly jumps. Not the best for doing a lot of rails and jibby stuff."

Alternatives to Consider

The experts recommend the Jones Ultra Mountain Twin for riders looking for something with a bit more stiffness, and the Salomon Assassin and Jones Frontier for those looking for a board with a little more flexibility.
