Avalanche Source Board
This was my first snowboard that I purchased during the off season and I absolutely love it. I spent the winter season in Austria and Italy learning how to carve and this board exceeded my expectations.

What type of wood is this board made of?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Avalanche Source Snowboard would use a softer wood such as birch for a more playful feel.
Will the rome s90 bindings fit this board?
Tyler M on Nov 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Avalanche Source Snowboard is compatible with the Rome S90 bindings.
Does this board have the metal edges?
David F on Jan 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Updated, I just double checked the board and I used a magnetic to check the edge and yes it does have a metal edge. Hope this helps.
Is the avalanche source a good board? I want something I can grow into and progress with will this do it for me?
Bryan W on Jan 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yep, it's a great board to get started on and grow into a great rider with.
Is this kind of board good with the terrain park? and is it light weighted?
Thomas S on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will handle the terrain park decently. Like any new board it will need a lot of breaking in, when I first got it it had almost no flexibility. But in time it got a lot better. Its pretty light in weight
I am 5' 10" 130lbs and have a 10.5 shoe size, will this board work? should I get the 150 or 155cm? Thanks for any help
Mark T on Nov 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your size 10.5 boots may be a little big for the 150cm and 155cm Avalanche Source snowboard's waist width. Check out the 155cm Sapient Trust Wide Snowboard, it'll a great fir for you. See it here:
do the bindings and boots come with?
Emily F on Oct 28, 2015
No.. this is just the board. Look:
I have weird sizing issues. I'm 160 and 6'1" and I've been told I need to be on a 159 with a waist width of 25.2. What would be the issues of me riding the 161cm? Also will this board handle jibbing okay?
Christian M on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Christian,
Typically a rider will fit into a range of board sizes depending on their style and skill (and preference). Your weight, however, is the most important factor. Most likely you could ride a 161cm length just fine! The extra length will tend to give you a little more stability, but slightly lessen its responsiveness.
Is there a specific pair of bindings that ywpuld be recommended for this board?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2015
I agree with Daniel, nothing specific, but this is a great simple deck to explore the mountain with. It uses the standard 4-hole mounting system which will work with any of these:
The board specs shows that its directional. Does this mean if your foot is goofy, (right foot first) the board won't work as effectively? Or can I just flip the bindings?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can flip the bindings. On this board, though, there is a clear tip and tail.
my shoe size is 12 is it wide enough to fit my feet?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2017
No... this board will be just too narrow. You will, for the most part, want to look at Wide versions of a snowboard:
What size snowboard do I need if I'm 6' and 135 lbs?
Tommy F on Feb 18, 2017
For this board you would be best off with the 158.
is this board compatible with M/L Arbor Hemlock Snowboard Bindings?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
Will size 10 boots work on the 158?
Michelle on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michelle,
Yea..... the 158 Avalanche Source would accommodate a size 10 boot.
Would I be able to hit jumps with this, all sizes of jumps?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! The Avalanche Source Snowboard is a great all mountain freestyle board.
Can I put any bindings from your site on this board?
C P on Nov 6, 2016
There are a few different binding mounting patterns. This board uses the standard 4-hole mounting pattern, so any bindings that says 2x4, 4x4, or 4-hole will be compatible (Look in the specs under 'Compatibility')
When bindings are sold and they say blue/whiten small medium (4-7) that is the foot size right and the color of the bindings?
Tim L on Feb 21, 2016
This question is posted to a snowboard... what bindings are you looking at? Typically they will have a Color listed.... ex:.Blue/White. Basically always they will have a Size to select. In your case S/M (4-7). The S/M is the size of the binding. The 4-7 is the boot size range that this binding will accommodate.
I bought this board and the screws that hold the bindings in fell out. It doesn't say what size they are so I have no idea how to buy replacement screws?
Bdutch on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brandon,
That is no good! Basically all snowboards use a standard screw size... you could check with our warranty dept: 1 (800) 409-7669... they might be able to help you out.
I have a size 9 boot. Will a 155 be two wide with the large avalanche binding?
Josh240 on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Shouldn't be a problem, Josh!
What is the flexibility on this board?
annie on Jan 18, 2016
This Avalanche Source Snowboard will have a Medium Flex... like a 5 to 5.5 out of 10.
Will avalanche Summit snowboard bindings fit on this board?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2015
They would work just fine!
is this board wide enough for a size 11 boot? all my research I did it is right on the board line of yes and no. thanks.
mozzo on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Wayne. You're right, it is close. What you want for a size 11 boot is a board with a waist width of at least 25.8cm. The largest size - 161cm - for this board has a waist width of 25.2cm. Some people can make it work, but I would suggest looking at a wide sized board. You can check out our selection here --
will this board work for a size 11 boot or should one start looking into a Wide board? I just want to cruise /carve turns
B Reller on Dec 3, 2015
You will be close. The 158 would be ok if you ride with your feet in a 'V' style..... the rest will be a tic too narrow. Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider. That is typically a Wide board.
Will roxy bindings fit?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes Roxy bindigns are compatible with the Avalanche Source Snowboard.
Does this board fit both regular and goofy footed riders?
Andrew M on Nov 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Andrew! Yep, you can set this board up either way!
compatible with burton freestyle bindings?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2015
This Avalanche Source Snowboard uses the standard 4-hole mounting system.. which the Burton Freestyle bindings are compatible to.
is this board capable with the Rossignol Battle Snowboard Bindings?
chink p on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Rossignol Battle bindings are compatible with the 4x4 pattern on the Avalanche Source.
What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of this board?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Avalanche snowboard is at one of the lowest prices points for a board within it's range. It cruises smooth and feels surfy!
