That is a Winterstick Severe Terrain (ST). Wood core with CMS (carbon-matrix-sandwhich) and rubber foil dampening...late 90's (98 or 99 if my memory serves me right).

So it's most likely capped construction? Would this have been made in Utah, or was the company in Maine by then? A guy on CL wants $130 for it, I'm on the fence.

So I picked the board up, it's pretty huge and built like a tank. It's been used exactly once, and only on the bunny slopes, which seems like a travesty for a board like this.

One thing that the guy I bought it off failed to mention to me before I drove half an hour to meet him though was that the topsheet was inlaid backwards, so all the lettering is reversed. Here are some pics

I'm going to take it out hopefully this week to try it out solid before I commit to sawing it in half.

The topsheet thing is interesting, makes me wonder where the guy got the board. Its well over ten years old and is basically brand new. Base and edges are pretty much perfect.
