It seems like everywhere you turn (literally), there is a new shape bursting on the snowboard scene. Mindfully crafted and designed with complementing materials and camber profiles, the best powder snowboards can make a good day on hill unforgettable.

Who needs a one board quiver when there’s a storm in the forecast? Picking the best powder snowboard will ensure you’ll be hootin’ and hollerin’ all damn day on those mornings after a big snowfall. Take a deep dive and check out the latest and greatest powder snowboards for the upcoming season.

New This Year:

2024 brings a thrilling evolution in the world of powder snowboards, with a clear emphasis on innovative and playful shapes tailored for maximum floatation. These designs, while rooted in performance, also introduce an element of fun, allowing riders to experience the sheer joy of effortlessly gliding over deep powder. Whether carving out fresh lines or indulging in tree runs, these uniquely shaped boards ensure every turn feels more buoyant and every descent more memorable. The trend underscores a broader move in the industry towards enhancing the powder riding experience, prioritizing both function and the sheer exhilaration of surfing the white wave.

Season Forma Snowboard

Season Forma

You know it when you feel it - a Platonic ideal brought to life for a few fleeting moments of gravity fed bliss. Like the Wizard of Oz bursting into technicolor after a lifetime of sepia, the perfect turn changes everything. The Season Forma Snowboard is crafted to seek it wherever it lies, with a volume shifted swallowtail design that harks back to the early days of surf shaping. This throwback pow shape offers dolphin-like agility in deep snow, but crank it up to speed on firmer ground and the Forma gives as good as it gets, begging you to get low and drag a hand.

Landon Harmon

Hey there! My name’s Landon Harmon, and I’m a Data Specialist at evo who assists our buyers for snowboards and snow accessories. I’m originally from Bellingham WA and had the privilege of growing up riding at Mt. Baker. I couldn’t get enough and taught snowboarding up there for 7 seasons, after which I moved to Seattle in 2015. I started working at evo that year in Customer Care and avoided the crowds by riding Stevens Pass on weekdays. There I gained more knowledge of the retail side of the industry and had my eyes set on the Merchandising team. I now get to work closely with what we are selling and support two amazing categories in our business. I recently moved to Portland and love getting to explore new mountains and take advantage of the longer season that Mt. Hood offers.
