    I have both protest and powder boards. Ski the protest more but there’s no comparison, the powder boards are way more floaty/slarvy but obviously have the weirdness of full reverse/reverse. Powder boards also turn upside down pow into hero pow.

    This. The questions you should be asking are: What length protest? What layup protest? What pretty pretty graphic protest? All of these questions have been answered at length. Your future self, bearing a shit-eating grin, will thank you

    Ullr was on my short list, and I ended up ordering +10 GPOs. We'll see how good a decision this was in 6 months ;-)

    Praxis BC in 180 vs Moment Wildcat 108 Tour in 184...which should I go with, TGR?!

    (Fully expecting a suggestion of something completely and totally different).

    182 UL GPO could be a good alternative to BC 180?

    I have a set of 180 BC but never ridden them, but lots of time on 192 yeti and 192 GPO.

    Hooray! Useful information! I think my Ullrs would overlap with the Protests... I want something for those absolute perfect deep days.. but never skied anything reverse/ reverse... or even just reverse camber...

    Powder boards rule. They are not actually true r/r though. They do have a straightish edge under foot and if skied like skates, ski fairly well back to the lift. Long flat run-outs can be a bitch tho. Spats and Splats are true r/r(wide spot is a point underfoot), which can be more tricky to ski.

    How about a +10FRS?

    What resort do you guys ski that you need powder skis?
    At Squaw, you might get a run of untracked, if lucky.
    Then you need a charger to ski the cut up snow, certainly not a powder board the way you guys define it.

    For 16+ squaw days my game plan is generally Protests until 11, early lunch, then goats for cleanup duty. Could I just ski goats all day? I mean, I guess...
