How to choose your snowboarding equipment?

Choose your terrain

To choose the right snowboard, you need to define your ride style, what you do on your board and the terrain you’ll be using it in. Its shape and size will differ depending on how you use the board, to help you get the most out of your playing field.


All-mountain snowboards such as the Salomon Assassin let you handle everything the resort has to offer and venture out to the edges of the pistes. You can ride on piste, through forests and go land some tricks in the snowpark.

Powder / Freeride

If you spend most of your time off piste, you'll need a Freeride snowboard that will let you float the powder, reach top speed and jump rocky ridges. The nose is usually elongated and the bindings further back on the board to offer an all-terrain ride.


Want to play in the snowpark, tackle some jumps on the kickers or the half-pipe? Slide the rails and boxes? You'll need a specific board in that case. A Twin Tip snowboard is symmetrical in terms of shape, flex, camber and nose and tail turn-up. Bindings are centered on the board making it easier to use, offering greater maneuverability and the possibility to ride switch (ride backwards).
