Loaded with twice the camber as Never Summer's traditional Rocker Camber boards, the Never Summer Ripsaw Snowboard tears apart early-morning groomers, icy pipe runs, and tight trees with surgical precision. It retains Never Summer's signature rocker for a bit of added playfulness, but make no mistake, the board's Ripsaw profile and medium-stiff flex aren't for the faint of heart, catering more towards riders who bomb steeps at blistering speeds and send gigantic kickers on a regular basis. Ripsaw Rocker Camber is incredibly stable and surprisingly powerful. This profile places accentuated camber zones under each binding for greater edge hold and incredible edge-to-edge response. As you'd expect with a Never Summer, the centerline rocker remains between the feet, enhancing float when you're slashing powder turns, as well as making it a bit more playful for freestyle riders. Plus, the Vario Power Grip sidecut utilizes multiple radii to create additional contact points for reliable edge hold across sketchy steeps and icy pipe walls. Sustainably-harvested poplar is fused with hardwood birch to create an incredibly lightweight, yet durable core. Carbon VXR laminates extend in Vs from the inserts to opposing contacts to improve response, also pre-loading the board for boosting massive ollies. The RDS 2 damping system smooths out the ride when you're exit a pow stash and find yourself surrounded by unruly chop and chunder. Sintered P-Tex sidewalls maintain integrity at cold temperatures, meaning they won't crack when you land a little tail-heavy on a frosty morning. It's finished off with a Durasurf sintered base that glides quickly to keep you slashing up every stash, no matter if it's a mellow run-out towards the bottom of the mountain.

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.
