john's Bio

I have been in SLC Utah for around 9 years and have been at backcountry.com the entire time. I like to do everything and know a lot about gear.

When I'm not outside, you can FIND ME IN THE BACKCOUNTRY.COM RETAIL STORE!!!

I just love it there. So many things and so many things of each thing.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

For a Pow board the Salomon Powder Snake is a-lot of fun. I normally ride a 156 in a Burton Joystick or 155 Never Summer SL. For the Pow Snake I got myself into a 160cm, the biggest board I own. Im 135lbs and I can easily maneuver it through pow. It is also the softest board I own. It takes no effort to flex it and make it do what you want. It's a great pow day only stick but I was able to have fun a day or two after storms on it. If i were looking for more all around pow board I may jump up to the Salomon Sick Stick. The Powder Snake is also pretty light and I found that it was easy to ride all day without getting tired. It doesn't have a lot of pop but I feel that comes with how soft it is and I was happy with it.

Overall.... Great pow board for the price definitely worth trying if your into soft floaty pow sticks.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This only works with Osprey Packs Hydraulics Hydration Reservoir which is there new Bladder .

You can dismantle it and replace the parts as needed. The hose insert is just a different size.

This is the bladder it works with.

It will NOT work with the Hydraform bladder
