A Burton Stellar Day!

I recently received a Burton Stellar and wow what dream ride in the Powder.  On this certain day at Hakkoda we where blessed with amazing weather and snow conditions. BLUE BIRD, no wind and fresh lines for days.  I can't remember or if ever riding a 165cm board, but this Stellar felt like race car jammin though the trees.  No drag, no slowing down in the flat spots. This snowboard is flat out fast in the Powder.

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.
