Take a good look at the K2 Raygun Snowboard if you'd like to maximize fun across the entire mountain, but don't have the loot for the fanciest boards on the market. After winning Transworld Snow's Good Wood for multiple seasons in a row, the Raygun has solidified itself as one of the best values for the all-mountain rider. The Raygun's flex pattern sits on the softer side of medium, which helps you initiate turns easily and play around the mountain without excess stiffness getting in your way. It's built on a directional twin shape for stability and extra float in powder--all without compromising your ability to ride and land switch in the park. Seeing it's meant for versatility across the whole mountain, the Raygun's Directional Rocker profile is entirely flat across the board's effective edge, which maintains solid edge hold for carving and remains stable when you're hauling down the mountain. Before the tip and tail contacts, the board lifts with a nice dose of rocker for catch-free turns and extra float when you're taking this board into fresh powder. The rockered tips also provide a fun platform for buttering and pressing in the park, as they're a bit more playful than what you'd find on a traditional cambered board. Using an aspen wood core, the Raygun emphasizes smooth flex and durability when you're riding it over the course of multiple seasons. The biax fiberglass lay-up integrates tip-to-tail carbon stringers, what K2 refers to as biax ICG10 carbon glass, for added snap and response when you're launching off jumps and sending natural hits across the mountain. Moreover, this board features a low-maintenance extruded base, which glides quickly down the mountain, even if you forget to wax it regularly throughout the season.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
