||It's directional, but no setback or taper, right? My TRS is banana, but it's a submarine in powder in comparison to the Mullet. I'm guessing this board floats alright, but wanted some confirmation before I decide to make it a backcountry board.

||How's the float in pow? I'm looking for a cheap board to split for backcountry!

|| You could be right... who knows... Although I will say this: Not many people are willing to travel for a 60-100 acre ski hill... but it seems that everyone and their dog comes to the big CO resorts. I've boarded in a similar hill in ND, and it was mostly empty... nothing like the lift lines I've seen in CO.

||Well... I'm going to give Loveland a try! Pretty stoked to try out a few new mountains. Loveland's pass comes with 3 free days at Monarch, and 1 unguided trip at Silverton.

||Anyone have one of these lying around? I have a 156 for my resort powder board, but I'm considering picking up a little bit longer one and splitting it in half for a backcountry splitboard! Doesn't need to be in flawless condition, but hopefully the core is okay.

||Yeah, those prices are nuts. I may just be scaling down the # of resort trips I take this year and put my money into backcountry. I just can't see dropping $1000+ to hit steamboat for the season. Unless I find a smokin' deal somewhere, it may just be a couple of 4-packs for me this season.

||Lame... $400 for an Eldora pass, even? Man, I was spoiled rotten in Boise...

||The only mountains in CO that I've tried thus far are Breck, Keystone, and A-Basin. This will only be my 2nd season living in CO, and I'm ready to try something new. Thanks for the info on Eldora! This is starting to sound right up my alley. I can run steep terrain comfortably, but quite honestly, my thrills come in fluffy powder between trees... hopefully with a few natural hits in between. I do appreciate the offer to ride along with you, and if I end up with a pass up there I'll likely take you up on it. Unfortunately, I'm no longer a student, so full price is going to be the ticket. Perhaps they have a retired military rate?!

||There's actually some great info in there, I much appreciate the heads up. Can anyone comment on Eldora? I've never ridden there, but I'm considering it as an option since it'd keep me off of 70. Also, after reading the above post, I'd like to know a bit more about Loveland.

||Starting to think about picking up a pass in CO for this season. Unfortunately, I don't see eye-to-eye with the general population, so I'm hoping for your input as to which mountain(s) would match my interests. I boarded Breck/Keystone/A-Basin last year and wasn't truly jacked on any of them. Insane crowds, snow tracked by 10:30, and most importantly... trees are extremely tight. I'm looking for a mountain with good tree-boarding. I like natural features, and could be perfectly fine if I didn't hit a groomed run all day long. I realize that I'm simply going to have to deal with the CO lift-lines, but something less than Breck/Keystone would be terrific. I don't mind driving to get away from the crowds, either, so throw out your options as long as they are in CO. Unfortunately, I can't afford a $1000 (or whatever they want) pass to Steamboat, so that'll have to stay off the list for now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

||The skate banana is the softest board I've ridden... you can press and hold it for a mile... far too soft for my liking. I'm a self-proclaimed Lib Tech hussy but I just can't agree with your statements on flex. I got rid of my naner because of how soft it was. I'm riding a TRS and Mullet now, and couldn't possibly be happier.
