Burton Feelgood: Best Women’s All-Mountain Snowboard
If you are looking for a quality all-mountain snowboard that is easy to ride, the Burton Feelgood is a good option. I bought a Burton Feelgood and rode the same snowboard for 4 years. The snowboard is smooth and versatile for intermediates, fairly stable for experts and yet forgiving enough for beginners.
The board performs well as a do-all snowboard. It works in park and powder, but is really fun for carving and cruising on groomers. If you are looking to ride more park, consider softer all-mountain twin (like the K2 Lunatique or the Ride Compact). Really aggressive riders could upgrade to the Burton Fortress (a stiffer ride).
The price is somewhat high, but the snowboard will last many years (newer riders won’t be bored once they learn). If you want a cheaper snowboard with a similar feel, consider buying last year’s Burton Feelgood (usually 30%-50% cheaper) or the Rome Vinyl, created by the same designer but for a cheaper price.
The Burton Feelgood comes in both camber and flying V (rocker/camber mix). For a better carving snowboard, get the cambered version. For a super easy learning experience and a fun, playful board once you learn, get the Flying V version.
What size snowboard to buy?
Select the snowboard size based on your weight according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you are between sizes, going with the smaller size can be easier to learn on. Snowboarders can often ride more than one size of the same snowboard.
