I prefer #1 and #2, so the poll is not really the way to go here, at least for me…

I have updated poll to allow 2 options. so you can now edit your post to poll again.

If you have preference between two of the options (like Powder and Gnar), please state in your post first preference.

For me my top preference is riding Powder.

I really have to disagree with the whole "tricks are for kids"...

If you've never floated a big backside 3, or stalled out a late backside 180 indy poke, the you're missing out. Charging a big natural air, or kicker can get the blood flowing just as much as riding "gnar".... what a terrible descriptive word.

Go get me my nookie, I can't wait to go get my kid on, and powder wheelie some pow.

Ron: the question was about building a kicker and sessioning it brah, not hitting natural features in the midst of a line… Big difference, at least to me...

Depends on the time of year. Pow when it's deep and gnar when it's stable. The rest of the time I just f*ck around and hit mini-golf lines with fun little features.

addicted to pow regardless of angle. Not sure steep pow (up to a certain point of course) qualifies as gnar so just picked pow. Steep hard-pack gnar etc is much more fun on skis. ooops, did I just say that? :o
