The Sell: A powder-loving board with all-mountain guts. The Test: With a longer nose than tail, the soft-flexing Omni won over testers during a two-foot storm cycle in Crested Butte, Colorado. A few expert riders found it squirrelly on firm snow, but not enough to make them put it away. The reasons: the positive camber between the bindings, which bolsters rebound and edge hold, and the identical nose and tail widths, for easy switch stance. The Verdict: It won’t overpower strong inter­me­diates, but it’s not for the lazy; aggressive riding is met with pinpoint response.
