For powder and trees 185s JJs are fantastic. You float through powder but can still turn on dime - essential for any tree skier!

I am about the same height and weight. Last year i bought the 175s and found them great particularly in tight trees. I got the 185s this season, which i've found better on deep days, but not quite as playful. If i had to choose just one pair i would go with the 185s for the extra float.

How does the split board transition times compare to using a snowshoe set-up or to ski-touirng?

Granted these are for powder in the backcountry, but how does it perform on spring crust or those long piste runs back to the carpark?

I really want to stop carrying my board on my back!

I use the Ascent with soft snowboard boots every BC weekend, they work great. The straps are long enough to wrap around the toe end of the 'oversized' style of a snowboard boot and the heel locks you solid. These are my third set of snow shoes and I rate the MSR's as the the best.

Also with practice I can now transition faster than anybody in my group.
