GNU has made an ex excellent snowboard when they made The Finest Snowboard. It’s a high end park/all mountain hybrid that has amazing pop. If you’re reading a lot of reviews about this snowboard, you’ll notice pop is one of the major selling points.
Personally I love the magne-traction and a hybrid camber, and the later is what helps with some of the pop. This is one of those snowboards I wish I could test out in Colorado on a nice bluebird day. Instead I ride in Minnesota, and it’s rare to get good powder out here.

Keep riding, test out the Magne-Traction and you’ll be having an epic time.

A GNU The finest is going to be an awesome snowboard to charge in. It’s got a good stiffness under your feet, and some softness in the nose and tail. With it being a ASYM Twin, you’ll be able to ride switch with no difficulty, (as long as you have the skills to do it).
Deep powder might be an issue with this snowboard but if you’re in a pinch, give the snowboard a set back stance, and you can make a day of it. It won’t excel there, but you’ll make do and still enjoy it.
