    Honestly, I LOVE this board. I first learned how to ride on my buddy’s Never Summer SL. After just one season, I decided to sell my very “well-rated”, Ride Algorythym in favour of the NS Snowtrooper. Being from Montreal, QC, we tend to get a mixed bag of precipitation and conditions. This board is extremely versatile and has performed amazingly on groomers, in the trees (“sous-bois”), and in the park. I have yet to try it in Powder but have no doubt i will float effortlessly. At the main hill i go to, Mont-Tremblant Resort, there are a LOT of skiers and a lot of “traffic”, so toward the end of the day, the conditions deteriorate quickly (i.e. a lot of chunder, ice patches). It has AMAZING edge hold in hard snow/ice, making you feel LOCKED IN and gives the confidence to power through those tougher conditions. In addition, the graphic as well as the texture of the top sheet is pretty awesome. So far, I have 3 full days of riding, and I couldn’t be happier. I paired my Snowtrooper with UNION Atlas bindings and Adidas Tactical ADV boots so it is extremely responsive. Highly recommended.

    Christmas came early! I recently purchased a 2022 Never Summer Snowtrooper. I admittedly invested more time in the search for my dream board than I do in buying a new car (my wife will attest to that). That’s how much I relish carving the white surf. And the Snowtrooper is the reason it can’t snow soon enough in Northeast Ohio. And it’s why we’ve already booked a ski trip to Holiday Valley in New York. First off, the Snowtrooper is visually exquisite. Vivid, art gallery-quality photography and head-turning imagery are splashed onto the canvas of the board. And based on the reviews and specs of the Snowtrooper, it will step up my groomer game considerably and max out my powder potential. Can’t wait to ride this rocker camber winter horse. Giddy-up! Thank you from the innermost recesses of my glacial heart, Never Summer, for making me smile, for making me excited, and for making life exponentially better during these COVID times. And a big shout-out to Bill at Sun Valley Sports in Akron for his first-rate customer service and for sagely matching me with my soulmate of a board.

      You’ve said it all Edward. Thx for the support!

    VERY impressed with the SnowTrooper! I was able to take it out the last weekend of our season on the east coast.. and all I have to say is WOW. I am 6’1″ and around 195lbs… intermediate level rider, I picked up the 157X and this thing handles like a dream. I was able to rip groomers with ease and lay some nice carves. Once you get on your edge, this thing is LOCKED IN. It has a very playful feel in the deeper powder…very catch free surfy feel. An absolute blast to ride and overall the board screams quality…which is definitely a trend from boards that come out of Never Summer. For anyone looking for a first board or a great all mountain board with loads of versatility, I would definitely ask about the Trooper… you won’t regret it!

      The board screams quality…thx!

    The SnowTrooper rips! Had my first day on the Trooper today and had to jump on here and give it a review (164X). Such a fun all around board. A bit about me: I’ve been snowboarding for 26 years. Expert level rider favoring powder (of course) and when there’s no powder around, I like to charge the crud as fast as possible and straight-line the groomers launching off whatever floaters I can find. I’m 6′ 3″ tall but only 170 pounds, so I usually prefer longer wider boards on the softer side. Years ago I worked for a shop that sold Never Summer and rode the 164 SL and 172 Premier for years (back when only one camber profile existed). The Snowtrooper does a solid job in the pow, helped out by the rocker between the bindings and a bit of setback. It won’t be quite as nice as a dedicated powder board, but does just fine. (I didn’t buy it for pow days anyway.) The soft flex and rocker/camber bombs through chunder, and I was surprised by how composed the board was while straight-lining groomers, I was hitting 50-60 mph and only felt it get a touch squirrelly once or twice. The flex and profile definitely make it playful, fun to butter and capable in the park, but I was so impressed by how fun this thing was to put on edge and fly. If you’re a heavier rider for your given board size, you might want to go with the proto or proto ultra. If you’re light for your board size or want something a bit more chill, this is a killer board. Looks great and comes in at a bit lower price. Stoked. I’d love to get on the other camber profiles from NS and see how they feel.

      Thx! We invite you to try the other profiles!

    Amazing board! I own a Funslinger, a Proto Type 2, a Proto Synthesis, and the Snowtrooper. All great boards, but the Snowtrooper is the one I reach for the most. I would consider myself a high lever beginner/very low level intermediate rider, and the Snowtrooper is perfect for me. Lots of fun, very forgiving, easy to turn, and nicely built. Highly recommended! Thanks Never Summer…Please keep up the great work!

    • Chris Harris

      Like a classic muscle car the Snowtrooper never goes out of style. Thx Vincent!

    The Snow Trooper Rules! Just got the 2020 and wow, I’m in love all over again. I’ve ridden my last Trooper over 200 days and it still begs for more. The board carves like a banshee, leaps like Tarzan and shreds the powder like a super hero! I’ve been riding since 86 and been on NS boards for a decade or so, I’m never going back. Keep up the great board making NS. Think Snow!

    • Chris Harris

      Thx Biff!
