It's got a rocker-camber-rocker profile which is the ideal setup for versatility because the rocker offers a predictable ride, good float in deep snow, and easy turns. While the camber is going to give you stability, good edge hold and a ton of pop!
Capita added a bunch of new tech to this board this year to make it wayyy lighter than most boards on the market. These means it's nimble and turns wicked easy! Super fun to throw around in the park, in the trees, or just dodging little kids!
Why I personally love it: This board is so jam packed with new features and tech it honestly resembles the type of boards you'd see going for $600-$700. In other words, a crazy good value deal!!
Salomon Pulse Snowboard · 2023
The Salomon Pulse is designed for riders wanting to gain more confidence on the slopes. It has a flat our camber profile to give additional stability across the center of the board, with bite free edges to avoid catching edges. The camber under each foot will give added response and allow for easy turn initiation as you learn to carve up the mountain!
This option from Salomon is the perfect board for progressing riders. Featuring a softer flex, learning how to ride will be relaxed and easy on the Pulse. A flat-out camber profile will help build confidence in those newer riders without feeling too aggressive. One of my top choices for a beginner rider who wants to learn some new tricks!
Great for all-mountain riding. Handles everything you can throw at it. Flat/camber/flat profile for extra stability for those starting out and looking to get good fast! Nice and soft with a bite free edge bevel. This is a beginners dream here.
Arbor Ethos Rocker Snowboard · Women's · 2023
This is a fully rockered deck that will be quite noodly and playful. This means that the edges curve away from the snow instead of towards it, so turn initiation is easier and catch free. If you like to get buttery and and surfy, this is the deck for you!

The Jones Mountain Twin is an extremely versatile directional twin designed with all-mountain rippers in mind. This board is a jack-of-all-trades and a one-stop shop for multi-terrain fun.

The blunted tips offer reduced swing weight for spinning off of side-hits and transitioning through the trees. The Sintered 8000 base ensures easy maintenance and high speeds. What more could you ask for?! This baby has it all!
One of the most playful options coming from Jones, the Mountain Twin is designed for the Freerider who can turn the mountain into their own painting canvas. From dropping deep pillow lines to hitting tree jibs in the secret park, the Mountain Twin will allow you to tweak and style out all of your airs while being able to hold up on some big landings.

Salomon Lotus Snowboard · Women's · 2023
Summary: The Salomon Lotus is a beginner/intermediate board that's great for pushing your boundaries and conquering new terrain! It's a very forgiving board and will make you quite confident in your progression! It's soft flexing and therefore playful so you'll never feel like you have to fight it and will have full control over your riding!
- The edge of this board is fully detuned straight from the factory, this means that you're less likely to randomly catch and edge and fall on this board than you would be on other boards!
- this board is a directional twin which means it's nearly identical from end to end. This makes it super versatile and great for riding in either direction if you want to explore riding with either leg forward! The nose is just ever so slightly bigger than the tail which helps it cruise through deeper snow on powder days!
Personal thoughts: this is one of those boards that is great if you're a beginner but it'll also totally stand up to more technical riding, making it great for intermediates as well!
Nitro Lectra Snowboard · Women's · 2023
Lightweight wood core give you the power and response in the pop you need without sacrificing strength and durability. Hybrid flat camber profile has nose and tail lift before the traditional contact points for catch-free and effortless turns. Float, press, and explore all over!
Lib Tech Cold Brew Snowboard · 2023
Summary: This is an awesome choice if you're looking for something that can rip up the whole mountain and are planning on doing a lot of riding in deeper snow or riding off-piste (riding in the woods, on ungroomed snow, etc). It's versatile enough that it'll be plenty fun on your average groomer day, but it is a freeride board at heart so on those powder and/or woods days this thing is going to let you charge!!
- It's got a setback stance and a big ol' nose meaning that it'll easily cruise through deep snow or over bumpy terrain without your legs burning from leaning back! Less leg burn=more fun!!
- Lib Tech uses "magne-traction" on all their boards including this one. it's essentially a finely serrated edge which digs into hardpacked snow and gives you better traction! Great for icy days when everyone else has no edge control!
Why I personally love it: I enjoy the fact that that Lib Tech decided to use a ECO Sublimated TNT base (Yes I geek out on things like this). This style of base is eco-friendly AND is super easy to maintain and keep waxed so it'll continue to ride "like-new" even if you hardly ever do any maintenance.
Riders who are looking for a fun, directional all-mountain board that will have your back in all conditions. Lib tech’s C2 profile gives you the rocker in the middle and the camber under the feet for that increased edge hold when you need it and the float when you don’t! The Magne-traction tech from Lib Tech will ensure that same edge hold when you are riding through those icier conditions and keep you gripped into that hard pack! This board is a mid-stiff flexing board that is stable and fun to ride. It has tons of pop, so you can also hit those jumps and side hits with no issue. Although it’s considered a directional board, it isn’t overly directional, making switch riding still definitely possible with minimal extra effort!
All-mountain freestyle/freeride board that does it all from park to pow, especially when things get deep! Incredible carving ability like the rest of Mervin Manufacturing's lineup is equipped with Magne-Traction that gives tons of edge hold even on the iciest of days, "turns ice into pow" is the motto Magne-Traction carries and it holds true anywhere. A mid to stiff flex offering a perfect balance to charge hard but not too stiff to hinder its playfulness. C2 hybrid camber profile is a perfect profile for a playful ride and powerful camber under foot for carving, edge hold and pop.
Burton Ripcord Snowboard · 2023
Solid deck for progressing on, with its flat profile, you'll get a catch-free ride so you get tons of room for freedom of trying new things and keeping your confidence levels up! The softer flex gives you a ton of opportunities to get jibby in the park if you so desire but keeps the ride as a whole, mellow. Not much this deck won't be able to do all over the mountain.
Softest of the three, an amazing bang for buck and a similar vibe to what you have already been riding. Easy edge transitions, ready to tackle the whole mountain!
K2 Standard Snowboard · 2023
The K2 Standard Snowboard is a great choice for those just getting started in the sport, or for intermediate riders looking to improve their skills on a forgiving, playful deck. It's made with a Catch-Free Rocker Baseline that moves the contact points off the snow for an intuitive and easy-going ride. Combines a soft flex and snappy Aspen wood core. Biaxially woven fiberglass hugs the aspen core and gives the board edge hold needed to handle higher speeds as you progress and explore new terrain. Directional twin, so you can play while moving in either direction as you fine tune your skills. It also uses Rocker Profile, featuring K2s Catch Free tune-that is flat in between the bindings and rockered just outside them as well.

Arbor Element Camber Snowboard · 2023
The rider who is looking for a tried and true legacy all-mountain board with a twin shape for a freestyle feel. Mid flex to the board is balanced to provide enough stability to charge hard and enough flex to play around the park and lock in some presses.

Grip tech adds extra edge hold in icy conditions when you need it. A do it all workforce for the rider who wants maximum versatility for all sorts of conditions and terrain you find in resorts.
Lib Tech T.Rice Pro Snowboard · 2023
A true beast of it's kind, named and shredded by one of the best freeriders of our era, Travis Rice. True and tested in the back country of Jackson Hole, this board is designed to be sent off some major powder pillows and flow the smoothest lines known to human kind. Longer camber sections underfoot with a short rocker in the middle will have you smiling with every carve. Mid to slightly stiffer flexing but the rocker in the center really makes this board easy to press. The ultimate park and powder experience awaits!
This twin board is second to none in delivering maximum versatility in backcountry terrain and is just as fun playing around the resort and through the park. C2 camber profile - rocker in-between the feet and camber underfoot for precision turning and maneuverability. Magne-traction for max edge old on firmer snow or ice. Mid-stiff flexing and horsepower (HP) construction providing strong stability and dampening for the hard charger and sender.
Jones Dream Weaver Snowboard · Women's · 2023
This is Jones go to All-mountain Freeride Board. I have been really wanting this board in the men's version for a while. It has rocker-camber-rocker profile which all three boards have. This is the kind of camber profile I ride, and going from the Skate Banana, your turns and stability will feel so much better. This board can do everything from steeps, to low angle tree pow, to ripping groomers, to even a few park laps if you really wanted to. It also has some 3D base shaping which means the nose and the tail of the board lift up at the sides and front and back, creating a base that funnels snow out better.
An everyday daily driver that is designed for slaying pow to piste, and down for a few laps in the park. A Directional twin freeride shape with a mellow flex. Versatility is the strength of this board, with a mid flex, and a Directional Rocker profile, which basically means it has camber underfoot for good precision in turning, edge hold and pop, and a longer rockered nose to increase pow float and turn initiation. Features Jones 3D spoon shaping to increase float and edge-to-edge response. Traction tech increases edge hold in icy conditions. This is a swiss army knife for the lady ripper
Decathlon SNB 100 Snowboard · Women's · 2023
This board can handle everything well, a directional twin to make riding switch a breeze while also giving you a little bit more nose for those deep days on the mountain. With a mid flex and standard camber this board is capable of handling everything from off piste, deep carves, and park jumps while staying playful and forgiving with its rocker nose and tail points. Great board for an intermediate to advanced rider, who wants a board that can handle any day on the mountain with ease!
CAPiTA Mercury Snowboard · 2023
This is one of the all-around best boards out there right now. It skirts the line between freeride and freestyle. A medium flex makes it ideal as an all-around charger and it has plenty of power built-in for the jump line and side hits. Great camber profile for some float in the pow while maintaining a locked-in ride feeling. Twin shape with a nice camber profile for float in the powder. This is the ideal board for an intermediate to advanced rider who doesn't skid their turns and likes a precise and locked-in ride. Not ideal if you like a surfy, loose feeling ride. You want to be on your game when riding this thing, but it can push your progression to new heights. Great all-mountain shape and flex profile and it can hold its own in the park, especially the jump line. Floats nicely in pow and holds a good edge on hard pack. This is one of the finest all-mountain freestyle boards out right now!
Lib Tech Orca Snowboard · 2023
Summary: The Lib Tech Orca is a powder board and will slay as much powder as you can throw at it, but it's sooo much more than that! It's built to be a freeride board and wants to get sendy off of every little bump, hump, and drop you can find! You'll be boosting airs and landing in powder like it's nothing and is an amazing board for riding fresh snow! It can even act as an all-mountain board for cruising those early morning groomers, a true all-in-one shredstick!
This board has a really interesting profile for a powder snowboard! It's got a small amount of rocker in the middle with camber underfoot! This camber is going to give you a ton of power to fly through turns, pop to blast off of sidehits, and stability to charge through gnarly off-piste lines!
This is a volume-shifted board, meaning it's wider than your average board but also meant to be ridden shorter than your average board. The width gives it plenty of float in deep snow, but it's smaller size makes it super nimble and great for weaving through tight spaces on a powder day (or dodging little kids on groomers)!
Why I personally love this snowboard: Lib Tech uses "magne-traction" in all their snowboards which are serrations on the edge of their boards. These serrations provide extra traction for hardpack or icy days which makes this board easily rideable even on days with bad conditions!
One of the more popular volume shifted boards on the market for the rider who is seeking pow, surfy the glades and carving up the groomers. Directional shaped with taper, gives it a surfy feel with mega float in pow. The C2 camber profile is rocker inbetween the feet for a playful floaty feel, and camber under the bindings giving you enough precision and edge hold on hard pack. Magnatraction side cut adds extra edge hold in ice. A mild swallow tail adds the extra icing on the cake for a powder killer. A mid to stiff flex, feels more stiff than playful, but can power through bumps and rough terrain.
Another great swiss army knife of a deck from Lib, the Orca comes with a volume shifted shape to allow you to size down 3-6 cm than normal, but give you all the support you need for any and all terrain fun! Big floaty nose gives you tons of buoyancy, while super poppy tail gives you effortless response. Go ahead, drop the insane pillow line of your dreams, or enjoy a casual lap on the groomers, nothing is off limits with this deck.
Dreamscape by Decathlon Endzone 500 Snowboard · Women's · 2023
A fun flexing, easy to turn, true twin. This board is great for beginners looking for a forgiving ride, that is catch-free, and playful due to its flat to rocker profile, and its softer flex. Also, due to those same traits, this will make any freestyle rider happy with how easily it butters, and turns at slower speeds. Very solid board for the price!

Arbor Formula Camber Snowboard · 2023
The Formula from Arbor is the perfect recipe for a great time all over the mountain.

The Arbor Formula Camber is designed for the all-mountain rider who wants a solid board that can handle some hard charging and not feel too stiff.

A true all-mountain twin that can handle all areas of the mountain with ease!! Parabolic camber keeps you locked in on the carves, and gives you nice pop as well! Equally as comfortable in the park as it is in the pow and on the steeps! GripTech so handles well on ice.
K2 Raygun Pop Snowboard · 2023
The 2023 K2 Raygun Pop is a very well known intermediate board in the all mountain realm of snowboarding. It can jib, jump, stomp and slash, so in other words it is one of the most versatile decks on the market. It loves resort groomed runs just as much as park laps and coveted stashes of pow.

Ride Manic Snowboard · 2023
Summary: This snowboard is an all-rounder powerhouse that you can ride on groomers, down steeps, in the trees, on ice, in the park, heck you could probably even ride it through the parking lot (please don't though)!
