What you want is all mountain versatility on a pair of narrow ass snowboards. How to get it is the Lib Tech Wreckreate NAS ReCurve Skis. Lib Tech is probably the only company that will sell you two "snowboards" for the price of one, and definitely the only one that can offer you technology like Magne-Traction and a rocker reCurve.
All Terrain / Pow Recurve reCURVE Magne-Traction lifts your tip and tails from ends of camber to traditional contact points, creating a “dynamic early rise” when boot pressure is applied to center of short camber. Easy float in broken snow and pow, mild pre-initiation for hardpack and ice carving, catch-free for jib presses. Pow specific reCURVE incorporates the additional float, lift and pre-initiation of rocker beyond the short camber fulcrum.

Magne-Traction SERRATED STEAKNIFE EDGE GRIP: Magne-Traction adds edgehold and focuses the control and power under your feet where your balance is centered. Each bump or serration is strategically sized and positioned. The most aggressive bumps are in the center near and under your boot for maximum edgehold and control. The bumps are progressively less aggressive out towards the tip and tails creating catch-free user friendly tips and tails. Magne-Traction’s incredible edge control when combined with reCURVE’s easy turn initiation and float make for an unreal smooth ride in all terrain and conditions from ice to pow.
Directional Tips float effortlessly in pow. Directional shapes focused on riding forward into the future. Great for Traditionalists with an edge

Comments about Lib Tech Wreckreate NAS ReCurve Skis 2014:
I skied these on a warm spring day at my ancestral mountain of Summit Central. Depending on the season, I'll get between 10 and 30 days of skiing and consider myself an advanced skier. The Lib Tech Wreckreate NAS ReCurve Skis performed admirably well given the spring conditions. The Magne-Traction is definitely interesting and the ski gripped well in wet, soft snow. I didn't have any problems with turn release, which I have heard is a complaint. Different style turns at high speeds were all surprisingly easy and the ski was overall quite enjoyable. I would recommend this ski, but demo it first because the Magne-Traction may not be for everyone.
