First Call Snowboard - Hillside Project by Salomon Snowboards
Part of Salomon's Hillside Project of uniquely shaped pow boards by Austrian freerider Wolle Nyvelt, the First Call Snowboard brings a fresh and inherently fun perspective to the mountain, whether you're surfing two feet of fresh after a massive storm or cruising slush laps on a warm spring day. Although it's shaped with a good dose of taper and funky tail cut-outs for functional float on powder days, the First Call is all about injecting a bit of freestyle playfulness into your freeride pursuits, making it an ideal board for the rider seeking to lap up powder first thing in the morning before sending side-hits and spinning off cat-tracks in the afternoon. Seeing it's part of the Hillside Project, each size of the First Call Snowboard gets its own distinctive shape outline, width, and tail cut-out. The 151-centimeter board is by far the widest of the three boards in this collection, offering up maximum maneuverability without sacrificing float on those deep days in the trees.

Sitting in the middle of the size range, the 157-centimeter board is more of a jack-of-all-trades board that's great for freeriding, cruising, and hitting jumps. Basically, this is the choice for most riders seeking a daily driver for virtually anything the mountain serves up, including deep powder. And finally, the largest 162-centimeter board provides the most surface area of the three, making it float fantastically and support the biggest riders looking for something fun to ride, from deep powder days to fun-loving park laps. All three boards share similar notes in shape and rocker/camber profile, with all models being tapered in shape and directional, but centered along the effective edge for stomping switch landings without it feeling unnerving or off-balance. Moderate taper makes the nose wider than the tail, which natu...

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.
