Description: Chamonix Chemin Snowboard

Full on powder days are what we strive for, so at the heart of a quiver, a pow deck should be present! In French, "Chemin" means "Path." This hard charging powder board will enable you to generate your own unique path as you charge down the mountain. Whether you're exploring chest deep stashes or surfing the perfect pow day, this responsive, directional camber board, will make for some of your most memorable days. While the directional shape, set back stance and stiff hardwood stringers make this board ideal for deep snow, the speedy sintered base and camber profile create a versatile experience that will have you smiling ear to ear. Whether it's surfing or charging, the Chemin provides the opportunity to carve a special path, all you have to do is choose a mountain!

Great board
I've ridden this board for 3 days so far this year and I really like it. Got to ride it in some pretty deep powder last week and it takes a little getting used to. I kept leaning back like I am used to doing but with the huge nose on this board you don't have to. Stays on top of the snow and allows for a more normal stance. My back leg feels a lot less sore after riding this board. Even hit some jumps in the park and rode some boxes with it. So far really happy with my purchase.

Great POW Board
Im 5'8 and 160 lbs. I usually ride park or all mountain boards from 152-157. I never enjoyed powder because any time I got in the deep stuff I tomahawked hard. My saying was "pow is overrated". I was so wrong. I picked up this Chemin in a 149. I thought it would be too short. I was wrong. Its all schnaaz w/ a small swallow tail and boy is it fun. Its stiff but it helps. I went to brighton and steamboat w/ it and had the 2 best days on hill of my life. I might be over the park. This thing floats great in pow and is great on groomers. I actually like ripping groomers more on this board than on a park board. Its great in the choppy stuff also. Over all, this board rips pow and everything but park. Its also quite affordable. Dont hesitate to pick one up.

Rides really nice!
Took the board out on a powder morning at Solitude mountain resort after 11 inches of snow supposedly dropped overnight but I think it might of been 8 inches at most 20 inches in 24 hours. The resort did groom some parts but new snow layered on top of it. Some parts are ungroomed with ice under the new snow. Some parts are chopped up from other skiers/boarders. The board ran through it all the different snow conditions and terrrains without hiccups. The nose did not sink into the snow at all. Just rode the board normally and maybe a slight lean back that is a carried over habit from riding normal boards on powder for so long. I bought the 156. You don't need to lean back riding the board and the tail has like zero swing weight. I can whip the tail all over the place instantly.

Smooth and controlled, BUT FAST!
Tried this board out in JAPOW that was a little on the slushy side because it was starting to melt. It's an awesome board with great control.
Pros
-Control, easy to make turns
-Works well on groomers
-Rides on the Fast side

Very satisfied
Super fun directional board. It’s super fast on the groomers, probably one of the fastest boards I’ve been on to be honest. Then she absolutely floats in the powder. Wether you’re on powder or on the groomers you’ll be surfing on this thing. Not ideal if you like switch but a good board for the money.

Good board for a heavy or tall ride with foot size 11-12
Board held up well in 26in of fresh powder overnight. My first real powder board and I'm impressed. The tail did snap on me while riding so the board seems to be cheaply made or I'm just a aggressive rider. Not sure but over all this board was like riding in Milk haha smooth and went through deep snow while others got stuck with there regular all mountain boards.

I'm 5'5", 155 lbs. Typically ride a 154. What size would be recommended for this board?
Steve M on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: get the smaller size.I ride the 156 but i weigh 190-195 lbs.the larger size are meant for heavier rider. I love this board,its rips on groomers let alone excellent on pow.Goodluck!
I’m 6’0” 225lbs and wear a size 11 boot. Will the 156 work for my size? Want to give this board a try but afraid it’s too small.
A shopper on Jan 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I’m 6’0” 170 and wear a size 10.

From my basic knowledge I know a general size estimate for snowboards is anywhere between your shoulders to the top of your head is good length wise. We’re a bit different weight wise and I’m not sure what kind of impact that might have because I actually haven’t been able to ride the board yet :/ the smaller the board the more control you have over it and seeing as this is a deep powder board that factor might come in handy seeing as deep powder is already difficult to maneuver as is. Hope this helped, feel free to ask anymore questions!
I like surfy carves on groomers & pow. My specs: 188lbs / 5'6"/Size 9 boot. 149? Or 156?
Shredstix on Feb 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Your weight is the most important factor in determining board length. Having a board that cooperates with your body weight will allow you to ride your best and not have to worry about losing control. If a heavier rider gets a board that is too short, the board tends to get loose and less controllable at higher speeds. If you’re looking to just ride powder, scaling your board up a bit may also be appropriate. A slightly longer board will help you keep that nose above the snow line, allowing you to float across the fluff at faster speeds. A longer board will also provide a stiffer board response for added stability.
I’m 5”11 165-170 pounds size 10. Should I go with the 156?
JakeC on Jun 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jake, I'm 6', 195 pounds I bought this board mostly for groomers with occasional powder turns. My usual boards are longer splitboards (170, 195) and just needed something inexpensive for resort days. Should work well for your weight, especially considering the price. If you're looking for a pow only board maybe look at something longer.
Think this will work with my size 12 boots? They are Thirtytwo primes (fairly reduced volume).
