    A lot of people ride freestyle / jib boards on the groomed runs - they work on skier packed and powder runs just fine but might not work that well on a really icy or "corduroy" groomed run where the softer board will chatter more than a stiffer freeride board would.

    I ride with a couple of people that ride Rome freestyle boards all over the mountain and they do fine.

    Good Luck

    I rode my 145cm jib board board (I'm 150lbs) in knee deep powder last month and besides having to set my bindings back it rode just fine. In fact I found myself having alot more fun as I spent most of the runs looking for things to hit in the trees and on the sides of the trails. I had so much fun that I never even wound up breaking out my all-mountain board.

    I agree though that on icy trails you definitely miss having more edge to grip with but it's definitely worth a shot.
