If you're no longer willing to bash yourself and your gear on rails at the park, there are really just two places to go - the backcountry or the groom. We've all seen the backcountry snowboarding market explode over the past decade. But what about the groomers? What are the specialized weapons that let us rip up the cord?
You could reach for your hard boots and your alpine board but more and more riders are opting for soft boot carving. Soft boots have finally reached a point where they rival hard boots for responsiveness and leverage. We have the backcountry specialists to thank for that since that crowd demands near ski boot-like control and response.
Watch and hear Mark Fawcett talk about how Kessler and Apex combine to deliver the ultimate softboot carving platform.
