Like its threatening name implies, the Ride Machete Wide Snowboard dismembers everything from intimidating jump lines to hidden tree stashes with its versatile twin shape and rip-anything medium flex. Although it excels at sending kickers and jibbing, it's never afraid to leave the park's boundaries for high-speed resort laps or even fresh powder on those cold, stormy days. This particular version is wider, giving those with bigger feet a solid platform without worrying about toe drag holding you back. Predictable at higher speeds, the Twin Rocker profile is predominately flat along the board's effective edge, rising early with a subtle dose of rocker to loosen up the tip and tail. Flat profiles are great at keeping the board stable at higher speeds and controlled on edge, but without the catchy sensation of a fully cambered deck. Subtle rocker along the tips makes it more playful while providing a bit of extra float. Ultimately, this hybrid profile maximizes the Machete's versatility, allowing you to conquer anything on the mountain with a freestyle-focused approach. Equipped with a Carbon Slimerods 1. 0 core, the Machete gives you loaded pop and smooth-riding characteristics you've come to associate with high-end freestyle boards. The Machete achieves this through incorporating a urethane-wrapped slimecore that's ultra-damp, with snappy carbon stringers radiating from the insert packs to the tips. Adding even more carbon into the equation, the Carbon Array 3 laminates amplify control and power transfer with crossing carbon stringers located under the binding inserts. As a bonus for park riders, Roll In Slimewalls dampen impact and resist sidewall blowouts when you're jibbing and stomping landings.

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.
