The Arbor Element Wide Snowboard excels at peak-to-park pursuits with its versatile shape, surfy rocker profile, and medium flex. It's a directional twin (i. e. what Arbor calls Mountain Twin) for the centered feel of a freestyle board, but with a slightly larger nose that glides across powder with ease. Ultimately, the Element Wide Snowboard eagerly obliges to your shredding ambitions, whether it's slushy park hits or soulful turns in the trees. The Element employs The System Rocker for a loose, surfy feel when you're slashing turns, dialing tricks in the park, and floating across the deep stuff. This parabolic rocker is most accentuated at center, becoming less pronounced at the tip and tail for better engagement with the snow. Ultimately, it delivers the superior float and catch-free personality you've come to love from rocker boards. As you're probably aware, rocker boards are prone to washing out through turns. Arbor alleviates this with their Grip Tech sidecut, which places two additional "bumps" alongside your bindings for greater edge hold, regardless if you're railing turns on groomers or laying an aggressive edge on steep faces.

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.
