Last winter, our crew took to the mountains and tested 20 of the latest snowboards in a full range of conditions, including ice, man-made, groomed trails, and powder. We whittled down the entrants to the following four best boards for conquering the park, pipe, and powder.
Jones Carbon Flagship Snowboard
BEST FOR ALL-MOUNTAIN
The latest model of Jeremy Jones' eponymous stick offers a carbon topsheet, which makes it 300 grams leaner than its wooden counterpart. As a result, it's whiplash-quick from side to side and, unlike some other skinny steeds, stable at speed. It plows through crud, making short work of icy slopes. [$800; jonessnowboards.com]
