BEST FOR: Powder lovers who still crave traditional camber.

THE TEST: The directional Juice Wagon fills the backcountry freestyle slot in Burton’s new Family Tree collection, marrying a noticeable amount of taper in the tip and tail with positive camber, unlike most freestyle powder boards, which have a heavy dose of rocker. Nevertheless, the Juice Wagon made precise turns, and landings were super stable. And none of our testers missed the standard reverse camber, since the spade-shaped nose and tail planed easily above the snow.

THE VERDICT: A surprising hybrid that rode powder like a trusted old friend—without getting caught up while lapping the lift.
