For novice riders, occasional, a snowboard more flexible and more tolerant will be advised, a snowboard type twin tip: with a nose and a tail of the same length.
For confirmed riders, intermediate, with the technical bases, at ease on groomed snow and also off-piste. A margin of progression is still possible, a snowbard board is close to a snowboard twin tip.
For expert riders, any board at stone will do. From the slopes to the powder and even through the park modules, the mountain has no secrets for you.
Choose your snowboard pack according to the shape:
When choosing your snowboard, the shape of the board has an importance. A snowboard that is similar at the top and bottom is called a twin tip. An all mountain snowboard can also have a similar top and bottom, the inserts will be moved back to have a longer nose. A freeride snowboard will have a different nose and tail with inserts set back on the back foot to float on the powder.
Which snowboard binding to add to your pack ?
At stone, we have 3 pairs of bindings that are all mountain, the aesthetics and some details change, but you can ride them all in all circumstances.
What size should I choose for my snowboard pack ?
Choosing the size of your snowboard is essential, in case your snowboard is too long, it would become difficult and less intuitive to ride. A board that is too short would lack stability and versatility. So you have to find the right balance according to your height, weight and level of practice. Your freestyle snowboard should be short enough, between 20 and 25 cm less than your height. For your freeride and all mountain snowboard, we will prefer a longer board between 15 and 20 cm less than your height.
