The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Dancehaul is a wider freeride board that shreds groomers, freeride lines, and powder. The directional shape doesn’t allow for switch riding, but you can still ride switch if you lean back enough. It was a true delight digging into turns on groomers, and the board had a good snap through the whole turn. The width of the board made me feel really confident laying it over at high speeds. It REALLY shines in the powder. The large nose allows the board to float on top of the snow with minimal effort, while the short tail and slight swallow shape allow the tail of the board to sink and work like a rudder in the deep snow. This board is fun all over the mountain, and it was one of my favorite freeride boards that I rode in 2023! Ten out of ten would recommend to anyone who doesn't ride switch, enjoys laying into turns, and likes riding powder:) Salomon knocked it out of the park on this one!!

Ideal for
  • Great carving board.
  • Excellent pop and very playful in the powder.
  • Floating to the top no matter how deep the snow.
Not ideal for
  • It is directional, so the board is not great at riding switch.

The Salomon Dancehaul is a wide, directional board that is made to be nimble and fun. It is a volume-shifted board that tries to emulate the shortboard from surfing. This is a fun board that is quick from edge to edge, a wicked carver, and great in fresh snow. It is perfect for the rider who is looking for a fun, creative, short-board that will slash turns, rip through the trees, and provide great turning ability all over the mountain.

Key Features:

  • Rock Out Camber – The board is flat between the rider's feet for stability with camber underfoot and rocker at tip and tail. This gives the snowboard a lot of flex near the tip and tail but tons of stability underfoot.
  • Radial Sidecut – The sidecut provides a consistent, fast response that performs well riding in both directions.
  • Ghost Green Core – The core is made with great materials that combine pop and a lightweight feel.
  • All Mountain Edge Bevel – A one to two-degree bevel in the sidecut delivers a solid edge with no hang-ups.

I rode this board over three days at 3 different resorts in Colorado. The first day was crusty and hard, typical mid-winter conditions at Copper. It took some getting used to going from a traditional length board to a volume shifted board. Riding felt a little weird in that it felt there like there is a delay to switch edges,... Read more
Ideal for
  • Carving, lay a trench with EASE.
  • Powder Float, stay on top of even waist deep powder.
  • Turning, stay locked in on edge with relatively little effort.
Not ideal for
  • This board is soft and playful, it will get bucked around on steep terrain.
  • Directional board, while it can ride switch it is not recommended.
  • There is a learning curve due to width, a little slow edge to edge at first.

The Salomon Dancehaul is a great board for any rider looking to just have a blast out on the mountain. This board is ready to seek and destroy side hits, get into the trees, lay down some great carves, butter it up and overall be the life of the party. It's a great option for a rider with a bigger...

Ideal for
  • Ability to size down 3-5 cm.
  • Lightweight and full of pop.
  • Great float in powder.
Not ideal for
  • The Dancehaul can get a bit bucked around at higher speed when going through some uneven bumpy terrain.
  • At higher speeds it does get some chatter in the nose.
  • The flex of the board may limit a rider who is seeking out some of the steeper terrain out that mountain.

Great versatile board

Posted on Dec 28, 2023
You can bomb down the mountain in this thing while cutting deep into the snow. Easy maneuverability. A little bit of chatter from the big nose but that's not until the end of the day. Love this thing. Sarah was also amazing hooking me up with it

easy transition to a modern board

Posted on Dec 28, 2023
I got great help selecting this board and I'm psyched to ride something that's modern, shorter and has rocker. And it still carves great. It was an easy transition from my 20 year old Rossi.

Really great for brand-new riders
5 /5
I'm a brand-new rider, only boarded twice. Always rented my gear. He took me from "never really looked into purchasing my own gear" to riding season-ready in a night. He was able to explain all his recommendations and made me feel good about using this service. Tailored everything to what I was looking for and really knows how to connect with newcomers to the sport. You can tell he's got a lot of experience boarding and I could tell he really enjoyed helping a new rider.

5 /5
Shopping online for snowboarding gear is daunting. The returns are not easy and you are worried you are not sizing the board properly or overlooking key features of the board. For a beginner like me, having a gear expert to talk to brought a lot of comfort and better trust in my choice of board. With the price match guarantee, you know you are getting the best deal online.

5 /5
Mike was great and very responsive. within minutes he was able to provide me with multiple options for boards, bindings and boots. He took time to learn about my skill level and what I am looking for. He asked for a budget and provided things under budget, in range and slightly over budget so I could see the differences between each item and value they add. He also was able to put together videos explaining each item and the pros and cons for each. On top of this I found a retailer selling one of the boot recommendations on sale and within 5 mins Mike was able to price match it in my size and I got them for $100 less than initially listed.

5 /5
He found a couple of boards that I really liked, ones I wouldn't have think of to look up. He took the time to tell me what each board was like and whether it would fit what I was looking for. We took a little more time to land on something that also had colors and designs that I wanted, because I am very picky and want to look stylizish. I'd say the effort was collaborative, because I was also actively searching on my own, but I liked that I was able to send him some of my findings, and he would tell me what he thought of those boards, then he would adjust my curations based on what I showed him. This was super helpful on my decision making, and eventually he suggested the Jones twin sister board to me and it's like, once you know, you know. Never purchased from curated before so I am a little nervous about shipping and quality control, and I also don't see reviews once orders were received, so hoping things all work out!
