The Union bindings are going to blow the Burtons out of the water or snow in this case. The soft food bed allows the energy to transfer through your board without jarring you, meaning you can ride smoother and faster with more control through rougher terrain. I rock a pair of the Atlas Bindings on my T rice HP and love the combo. Makes cutting through chop smooth and allows for a more aggressive riding style. The Atlas uses the same base plate minus the canting in the foot beds (which would be awesome) and I can't believe how much power I can deliver to the edge while still having the damp feeling provided by the padding. Another thing you will notice is how easily the Union bindings transfer power to the board but not allow chatter to come back to your feet. You'll feel the difference once you put them on your board, its unbelievable.
