The ultimate powder board

The current iteration of the legendary Swallowtail® has been thoughtfully designed to not only maintain speed in powder like no other, but also function as an amazing daily driver and all-mountain board.

The regressive sidecut starts tight and elongates through the tail, allowing for high speed stability. The deep swallowtail bends while carving and makes up for the long sidecut to make this an unexpectedly fun carving board as well.

If you’re looking for the ultimate powder board, this is it.

Camber Profile

Long low rise nose in front of the traditional camber makes the Swallowtail the ultimate board for keeping speed in the deep.

    Old winterstick rider from the 70's. Still ride the same board in the powder. I rode this board years befoe snowboards were allowed on any ski slopes. Swallows rule in the powder.

    I got the 70's version with the rudder on the bottom and I have out manuevered any other board in powder to this day. Always dug this board. I guess that's the reason that I have held onto it for 50 years.

    Powder Missile

    Riding this board in Valdez, Alaska as we speak. So much fun in the deep stuff. I'm riding the 173 and I'm surprised at how nimble it is for a bigger board. My friends can't keep up with me. I love it.

    Perfect combo of surf and carve

    Just got back from Mt Hood with this board and am a little concerned that none of the other boards in my quiver could be getting much playtime. An absolute blast to ride, super back foot surfy but able to lay down deep carves. Past 3 days I've taken it into very snow condition possible...Cascade crud, ice, steep corduroy, deep soft pow, wet and heavy untouched, skied out bumps, even a little air time...and this board really delivered. One of my favorite shapes was the early Burton Fish but it was a fish out of water on anything but pow. The WS Roundtail is as playful and "wiggly" as the fish but excels it on the trip to, and from, the goods. Granted you have to stay on top of this when carving at high speeds but it's well worth the effort. Three gorgeous first chair laps down fresh courd on Palmer at Timberline had me feeling like the back leg burn was well worth the feeling that even the fastest person on the mountain seemed to be standing still. Full and even strong press on this board had me locking in rails at speed then a shift into the back seat was all it took to weave through the tightest trees. Bumps threw me a bit but no worse than any other board and it seemed to fit in the troughs a bit better than most making a thought out and executed line well rewarded. Pleased to find that Winterstick lives up to the hype and that this aesthetically gorgeous board is more than just a pretty face.

    Fun, Fast and Floaty

    Got to try this board out in the mountains of Maine, conditions were a fresh 4" of heavy snow and groomers that were packed powder. The board wants to go fast, when you put it on edge it is staying on edge and you are moving quick. I really enjoyed how fun a carve was to lay down with this guy, and in the spots of fresh snow I could tell what this board was really meant for. Would definitely recommend this board to anyone looking for a directional powder board that can also fly on fresh groomers.
