    I've seen the wider, hunkered-down stance you are talking about directly referred to as 'gorilla stance'. Very stable, and absorbs bumps well - so good for 'attacking' a slope, or at high speed.

    Just did my first road trip to hit the BC interior ski hills - did Whitewater, Red, Baldy and Apex in 5 days.

    They're for climbing uphill on snow.

    Backcountry touring skins have thick, dense fibres (a bit like a carpet) pointing at an angle towards the tail of the board. The skin is therefore smooth in...

    Touring skins for Rockered Condors

    I've put a much longer thread in the 'backcountry skiboarding' section, since it probably doesn't have relevance to most skiboarders - but I thought I would post a single photo here.

    Avalanche Skills Training - on skiboards

    I took Avalanche Canada's AST1+ course this past weekend.

    There was a bit of classroom learning, but the bulk of the course was taught on the snow, out in the back (or side) country.

    This was...

    I've done that run twice in 5 years. Both times is was 200m of pristine, beautiful powder - followed by 11km of icy mogul infested hell.

    First tracks without ice would be amazing, though.

    There don't seem to be a ton of us in BC - not sure why. Always get really good comments / feedback regarding skiboards every time I go to Whistler, though.

    Took them out to the local mountain to test them out. Conditions were amazing for skiing, but not so good for a 'Gear test' - 20cm new powder, still snowing, at night (under floodlights).

    I ride the RCs in all conditions, from powder to ice/hardpack. I guess they suit my riding style, but even on groomers they would be my go-to boards. I think you'll be fine.
