Yes, the Salomon HPS - Annie Boulanger Snowboard is a pow stick. No one wants their pro model to be a low tide groomer board - but this one's a winner. With a medium flex but extra surface area, 30mm of setback, and a deeper swallow tail than the OG Wolle Nyveld shape, the Annie Boulanger is built to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. Salomon uses all the weapons in it's engineering quiver to build the Hillside Project boards, and this is no exception - Ghost Green core, ABC Wrapper and their fastest Sintered EG base are all part of the package. Next time it dumps, be ready to do some shaking and BAKING with this optimized powder shape from Salomon.
Powder Camber – Camber between feet for carving and precision, and huge rocker in the nose for flotation in very deep powder.
Flex Rating – 4 (1 Soft - 5 Stiff)
