Is absolutely awesome.
Negatives are :
- the constant putting on and off of bindings are a killer.
Specifically when your bindings suck, and flick off constantly.
- the waddle, when you have to walk up with board attached to one foot.
-crossing over ridges, sticking in the edge, killing your legs, pushing with your arms. In that way sking is easier.
All is forgiven in virgin snow.
