Choosing The Best Powder Snowboard

Corbin Hladick Kemper Snowboards

When it comes to powder snowboards, there are a few things you need to know in order to make the most of your time on the slopes.

First, powder snowboards are designed to float on top of the powder, so they are wider and have a different shape than traditional snowboards. This makes them great for carving turns and getting through deep powder, but it can also make them more difficult to control on hardpacked snow. One of our top-selling powder snowboards is the Kemper Apex.

Second, powder snowboards have a different flex pattern than traditional snowboards. They are often softer in the nose and tail and stiffer in the middle, which helps them to flex and float in the powder.

Third, powder snowboards often have a different base than traditional snowboards. They often have a thicker, more durable base that can stand up to the demands of riding in deep powder.

Fourth, powder snowboards are often equipped with special features that help to improve their performance in powder. These can include things like extra-wide shovels, powder-specific edges, and special top sheets that help to repel snow.

Finally, powder snowboards require a different wax than traditional snowboards. They need a wax that is designed for powder conditions, which is often harder and more durable than wax for hardpacked snow. With these tips in mind, you'll be ready to tackle the powder on your next snowboarding adventure!
