Best Powder All Mountain Snowboard Deals

Lib Tech Orca Snowboard 2022 (On Sale)


Lib Tech Orca Snowboard 2022


The Lib Tech Orca is one of the best selling snowboards on the Lib Tech line. The Orca is a volume shifted, powder ready board. That means it runs wider than most traditional snowboards. This board is intended for you to ride 3cm shorter than your usual board.

The wider profile is what makes this board so versatile to float in powder while still being able to use it as your all mountain board.

The Orca has Lib Tech’s C2X board profile. It looks like this when you look at it from the side.

Travis Rice Orca C2X Board Profile

This profile has reverse camber between the feet and camber in tail and nose.

The Lib Tech Orca Snowboard has a two and a half inch set back stance (you stand further back on this version). The longer nose helps the board float better in deeper snow.

If you are looking for a responsive snowboard that can handle all conditions and float beautifully in powder, then this board is for you.


Pros

  • Edge hold / gripper – This has Magne Traction. It will give you a perfect carve in hardpack and powder.
  • Turns well – The rocker hybrid profile wil help you connect your turns.
  • Volume shifted – able to size down (it is wider than most decks)

Cons

  • Tail shape can cause some wash out in hardpack and not great for riding switch stance.
  • You can feel slight vibration
  • Popular – this has a risk of selling out and not always feeling like a unique board choice.

Sizes Available: 138, 144, 147, 150, 153, 156, 159, 162

Flex: Stiff 7/10

Best Park Snowboard Deal

Capita Ultrafear 2022 Snowboard


Capita Ultrafear Park Snowboards (On Sale)



The Capita Ultrafear is one of those twin shape freestyle snowboards that can do it all even though it is typically a “park board.” This is the board I rode all season, and I loved every second of it. You can read my Capita Ultrafear review to learn more. This snowboard deck is highly resilient. The Ultrafear will hold up to all of the demands of hitting rails in the street or park riding.

For 2022, this snowboard was updated to feature the Resort V1 board profile. This is a fairly large change from last year’s Ultrafear with the Park V2 profile. Here is an image showing the difference, with this year’s profile on the top and last year’s on the bottom.

Capita Ultrafear Board Profile compared to last year

The board profile now has a positive camber between your feet, flat under your feet, with a slight reverse camber (rocker) right before the tip and tail. In previous years the board was primarily flat between your feet, and now there is some camber to give it more pop.

Basically, the Ultrafear is now likely a slightly wider DOA (Capita’s best selling all-mountain board).

So how does the Ultrafear feel now that it has a camber profile?

The 2022 Capita Ultrafear has managed to retain its flexible and snappy nature. As opposed to last year’s Kevlar body armor, Capita has added in the Carbon Aramid Body Armor to the 2022 version. This better protects the contact points while increasing the responsiveness of the board. Capita also managed to decrease the vibration you would feel riding this by adding more cork into the edges.

The 2022 Ultrafear’s change to the V1 resort profile has not decreased its jib friendliness. It compliments it. The profiles’ flatter “WAH-POW” nose/tail shape, a press is easy to initiate presses and butters. At the same time, the camber section between the bindings adds to the board’s pop and response.

The new profile has improved the snowboard’s ability to launch off jumps too. The camber and carbon added in will boost you while the flatter nose and tail make your landings catch-free.

The wood core of this board was also upgraded for 2022. Now it is called the Dual Blaster V2 Core. The core features a combination of poplar and Paulownia wood. The combination makes this an incredibly light, durable board with a predictable feel. The perimeter of this board is incredibly durable thanks to its Carbon Aramid Body Armor™. If you accidentally hit your nose or tail on a feature in the terrain park, this board was specifically designed to take the impact where most other snowboards would chip or crack. Capita also added cork near the edges of this deck. The added cork helps give the Ultrafear absorb the chatter of rough terrain and make the impact of jumps feel softer. The Ultrafear features a fast and durable sintered base.

Overall, the Ultrafear is the perfect freestyle snowboard for beginner to advanced park riders who want a durable, playful, and fast deck.

Lib Tech’s Skate Banana is an easy to ride twin-shaped all-mountain freestyle board. This snowboard deal is for last year’s model, and the only real difference is that it has a different graphic than the newer version.
