Best Women’s Powder Snowboards 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

There aren’t many greater feelings than waking up and realising you’ve had a truckload of fresh snow overnight. We just need to make sure that when we’re blessed with such conditions, we’ve got the right equipment to handle it. There’s an abundance of powder specific snowboards on the market these days, and we’re seeing a rise in weird and wonderful shapes being introduced.

“There’s an abundance of powder specific snowboards on the market these days”

Over the last few years, we’ve seen the traditional powder board rhetoric thrown on its head. More and more boards are adopting the short and fat outline, swapping length for width to make up the surface area. These little rockets are more manoeuvrable and agile than the traditional powder boards and are the ideal companions for zipping in and out of the trees.

A more conventional powder board will normally be a little longer than your standard snowboard and will generally feature a progressive rocker in the nose. These missiles are perfect for huge slashes on wide, open faces and will throw up tracks like nothing else. Like with everything in snowboarding, there’s no right or wrong with it, you’ll want to have a browse through and see what board matches your style of riding.

“These are the boards we would want with us when we’re rolling through waist deep freshies”

If you’re looking for a board to take on more serious backcountry lines, or deliver power and performance across the rest of the resort, then our choice of this year’s Best Freeride Snowboards might be more to your liking.These are the boards we would want with us when we’re rolling through waist deep freshies, throwing up fat roosters and pillow dropping to our hearts content. They all got the seal of approval from our Whitelines Test Team, so here they are in all their glory- our favourite women’s powder boards for 2019/2020.
