It handled great in the steeper lines, but a little sketchy in ice or variable conditions. But thats no what this board is built for. Its for POWDER! I will be riding this board quite a bit in the coming months and years. Burton has really out done themselves by creating this Monster Powder Board. Not only does it ride like a dream but she sure is pretty.
Here is the quote from Burton:
"For those who dream of the prefect snowflakes and bottomless blower, we introduce the NEW Stellar. Our most premium powder stick ever-enlightenment will follow the lucky few who fin it. S-Rocker, the Swallow Tail, and mellow 5mm taper combine for added float on those overhead days. Add a rocket-propelled WFO base and ultra-light materials throughout, and this retro-futuristic ride is primed for the off-piste, no matter how deep ( or steep) it gets."
Here are some pic from the 1st day on the Stellar...Thanks to Nate and Collin for these Pictures.
