Snowboard Life Top 25: Winterstick Severe Terrain

What better name for a freeriding board than Severe Terrain? Pro rider Adam Hostetter makes this his all-around cruiser, riding the 162 every day, the 166 when it’s super deep, and the 173 in Alaska. “The shapes and sizes of the Severe Terrain line really work well for me,” he says.

“The dampest ride around,” according to Jonathan, the Severe Terrain uses four separate dampening systems. With tons of sidecut, it’s both quick and stable, perfect for powerful, railed turns, in even the hardest snow.

As Kevin described it, “Tight turns took some effort, but who does those anyway?”

Not ideal for lightweights, the Severe Terrain is a better board for aggressive, powerful riders.
