snowboard for Japan

Hi guys, I’m a intermediate snowboarder and I’m looking for an all mountain snowboard for Japan as I will be spending a month in Niseko on the coming December. Which all mountain snowboard would you recommend if i also plan to do some park/freestyle? i did some research and heard a lot of good things about the Ride Warpig but don’t want to spend $600+ before hearing some other opinions.
The snowboard that I’m using atm is a 148cm K2 Bottle Rocket.
Thanks in advance!!


hey man have you tried Jones boards? i got and Jones aviator for my last trip to japan, and it charged everything. i used it every where around myoko (park, euro carving gromers and pow) and it didn’t disappoint. only caveat is im on the lighter side at 72kgs.

wasnt super floaty in pow but not bad for a stick that handles everything else.
