Men’s powder and big mountain snowboards are wider and usually have a substantial rocker profile, which together will keep you afloat in the pow and allow you to pin the steeps you’ll find on big mountains. Some powder men's snowboards
and big mountain snowboards are available as split boards, which allow you to break the board in two – somewhat like skis – in order to climb with skins. If you buy a split board, you’ll need snowboard bindings specific for climbing as well. This snowboard category offers boards that can tackle any terrain.
