“Los Angeles Center, Aspen 20, can you give us a ground speed check?”

After putting in countless days riding his Original Winterstick Swallowtail, Rob Kingwill felt inspired to shape a modern version with a little more horsepower. He took out some of the taper, widened the swallowtail, and added some angular inspiration from the elusive Aurora Project plane design. Looking for stability on steeper runs in Jackson Hole and Alaska, the sidecut radius blends from tight to long in tail, for a catch-free riding experience. Not just for powder, this board handles just about every snow condition with ease, and may become your daily driver. Although it is inspired by stealth, the jet black and red top sheet is going to set off every radar as you walk through the parking lot and tram line!

    USA Made Ripper

    Brooooo this board rips! I’ve named past boards as “Ricky Bobby” because they like to go fast. But this board gets its own name of “Carver X” because it’s fast as f*** ,holds an edge at any speed and just wants to carve with minimal effort.

    I’m a first chair east coast rider and this is where the board shines for me. Being to able to hold an edge and look good carving it on tight groomers is the bomb. Then later in the day after the sun warms everything up this thing is just as impressive. The nose has just enough flex to push through the crud without felling sloppy.

    I’ve been riding for 30 years. My park riding days are far and few between so I’m all about the carve now … “happy learned to carve”..lol and this board gets me there. I’m officially on the Winterstick cool-aid and you will be too once you demo one.

    Thank you Winterstick team for an awesome experience from being to end. I’m thinking of your hard work every time I ride it! ….THINK SNOW!
