We have chosen Burton as our brand of choice. Burton Snowboards founded by Jake Burton Carpenter in 1977. Burton has specialized in being an innovator in snowboards, bindings, boots, which shows in its powder specific line of snowboards.
We will provide you with the nearest length of board that you select. When selecting board lengths you should consider the following; All of these boards have plenty of sustained width which enables them to float on powder snow. Accordingly there is no need to select a longer board to achieve flotation. We strongly recommend guests to consider that there can be some benefits to riding longer boards in wide open terrain, this is more often secondary to the need to manoeuvre in trees and heavily featured sub-alpine terrain. You will have the opportunity to board a lot of runs and a lot of powder, so pacing is a consideration. In other words, long boards are more often more difficult to turn and heavy, decreasing sub-alpine skiing ability and increasing fatigue. So as a rule of thumb select a powder board that is either the same length or 5 cm shorter than your resort board and this will not only provide a board suitable for flotation, but will also maximize the amount of energy you will have the runs you will be able to heli ski.
