Rome Mechanic Snowboard · 2021
Park, trees, powder, and playing around on everything else. Full rocker shape, and med/soft flex makes this board great for playful groomer riding to park. It can handle the whole resort, and be forgiving when your off your game a little, and performs well in powder as well. Solid board for under $400!
Great all-around snowboard that will be stable and not too catchy, and the soft flex will give a lot of manueverability and playfulness. The camber underfoot on this snowboard makes it a better carver and more stable at speed than full rocker snowboards.
The whole mountain. Designed to hit any terrain as well as the park. Soft/medium flex.
Rome Warden Snowboard · 2021
Camber underfoot and rocker out in the tip and tail, this is a slightly directional shredder that will sling out of groomer carves with power. Highly versatile directional twin designed for the hard charger yet playful enough for buttering and popping off side hits!
Park laps, groomers, side hits, you name it, the Warden can rip it. Killer mid-flex all-mountain rig from Rome, this one gives you a rocker at the tips and camber in between the inserts providing tons of response when you need it, but can keep things mellow if you so desire. Combined with a directional twin shape you get tons of stability while still being able to approach stuff switch.
Directional twin, mid-flexing deck designed for all-mountain destruction! Positive camber profile, carves hard, slays pow, and has a nice flex for fresstyle fun. Turns the resort into your playground!
Rome Royal Snowboard · 2021
This board features a stable Stomp Core, progression-friendly contact rocker with a catch-free feel and a durable impact base that is made to handle full days of exploring your skills and discovering your new sport! Soft flex rating (3/10) will make this board very forgiving and easy to learn on
All-mountain cruising, fun slashing on the groomers. It's a very versatile platform with deep side cuts to make those long carves. Coupled with awesome edge hold, this is a dynamic board that will have you sailing down the runs.
Arbor Foundation Snowboard · 2022
The Arbor Foundation Snowboard is a medium flex board that is ideal for hitting whatever features you can find on the mountain and the grip tech under foot ensures you have control when you need it. This classic, all-around, all-mountain board has a parabolic rocker that is ideal for a surfy ride, natural float, and buttery turns and spins!
Great for cruising groomers and riding park. GripTech for added edge hold on those icy days.
Arbor Formula Camber Snowboard · 2022
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!
Arbor Ethos Women's Snowboard · 2022
The Arbor Ethos Women's Snowboard is a beginner-intermediate board that is built to be a fun, catch-free ride anywhere on the mountain. It's playful, easy to turn for enjoying every moment even at slower speeds as you progress. The rocker profile, as well as the softer flex rating, provides excellent maneuverability on the mountain. It's great for greens, blues, ice/crud, park, and riding switch! Arbor is also one of the most eco-friendly board companies out there.
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!
GNU Money Snowboard
- A perfect twin park-preferring utility board that's still at home on the whole mountain.
- Magne-Traction holds an edge when the snow gets hard or icy (think of a serrated edge knife).
- C2 Rocker Camber Hybrid and a sustainable wood core will have plenty of pop for those ollies and side hits, while still being easy to turn edge-to-edge.
K2 Party Platter Snowboard · 2021
Burton Family Tree Big Gulp Snowboard
Playful board where the nose is wider than the tail allowing for the nose to rise quick in pow while the tail drops to give you perfect float.
This is a powder day dream. With the camber to rocker profile, you'll be walking on sunshine and floating on powder.

Full poplar core, underbite edges for smooth and grippy turns, one of my fav camrock profiles - this deck will be TONS of fun for more advanced riders!
