Destined for peak-to-park ripping, the Arbor Element Black Wide Snowboard excels across the entire mountain with its versatile shape, mid-range flex, and surfy rocker profile. It's built on a directional twin shape (i. e. what Arbor calls a Mountain Twin) for the centered feel of a freestyle board, but with a bit longer nose that glides across the deep stuff with ease. The Element Black differentiates itself from the standard Element with its Power Ply Topsheet of hand-dyed ash wood for a distinctive look and feel on the mountain. The Element Black employs The System Rocker for a loose, surfy feel when you're slashing turns, learning new tricks in the park, and floating across fresh powder. This parabolic rocker profile is accentuated at the centerline of the board, becoming less pronounced as you work towards the tip and tail of the board. Ultimately, The System Rocker delivers the superior float and catch-free personality you've come to love from rocker boards, but with a bit more engagement towards the tip and tail contacts. As you're probably aware, full rocker boards tend to be a washy affair with less-than-ideal edge hold. To eliminate this issue, Arbor uses their Grip Tech sidecut, which places two additional "bumps" along each binding zone for locked-in grip and easily controllable edge hold, regardless if you're laying turns on fresh corduroy or holding on for dear life on sketchy steeps and glazed-over ice.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
