Rickwrote a review of Slash Aurora Snowboard on May 11, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The GOOD: This is an awesome CRC board, really aggressive camber and stiff flex with an interesting cutout in the waist to make it torsionally milder. It shines bombing runs and carving mid to long arcs. Paired with some stiff bindings, this will rule the steeps. Have not tried in deep pow yet and I am not expecting it to perform like a dedicated pow board as it seems to be optimized for groomer steeps.
The BAD: I also have a comment about the quality of packaging from BC. The board came wrapped in nothing but a single layer of cardboard, and when opened the board had a noticeable cosmetic damage at one tip. I think at the very least BC should use bubble wrap or similar to protect the board. I thought about returning it but decided to keep it as the damage looks to be a cosmetic one only. If it develops into delaminating or other more serious issues, I will be contacting BC.
