Best Snowboards for 2016

When it came time to test all of the 2016 snowboards last spring, we were looking at some bare mountains in the Northwest. So we decided to make the best of it and grabbed a bunch of park snowboards for a 10-day park shoot out. When we showed up at Timberline Lodge ready to jib and hit the jumps, something unexpected happened–snow, and a lot of it. It dumped. So we extended our testing to a month which gave us plenty of time to really get to know each board in the right conditions.

These are the snowboards that received a Shred Cred Award with ratings of 90 or above.
