Utah powder is where it's at, so I won't go too far into arguing about the best place to find it in Colorado, but the comments he made about the Fish seem pretty good. However I OWN one, don't just demo it. I ride it everywhere and on all days. Its tight turning radius (smears turns a bit, but carves remarkably for what it is) is amazing in the trees. In fact, I even ride this board on groomer days. It is simply the fastest snowboard I own, and I've ridden my share of Arbor, LibTech, Rossi and Salomon boards.
The board, to me, is a quiver killer. The ONLY thing I don't recommend is switch. As the Coloradoan mentioned, it's best done in a pinch. So for you park rats, not a good choice, but this board has SO much pop it's unreal, and it manuals like you wouldn't believe....flex for days.
I am selling all my other boards because they just aren't fun anymore. The Banana Hammock was my last powder board and it does not come close. It's way too one-sided and honestly it has a good bit of nosedive in the steeps. The fish never seems to sink.
I ride a 158, 6.1' and 185 lbs. Take one of these bastards on a mogul run and turn some heads :)
