    Have you gotten a chance to ride the GB Pop? It’s pretty intense. I rode it on a fairly icy day my first time at Jackson Hole, and that thing wasn’t messing around. I’ve ridden the old Mix’s and generally liked them, but I definitely preferred the more laid back feeling of the Eco Pop. The Eco Pop was one of my favorites for next season!

    Jenna,

    Not yet but it’s on my list of boards to ride. Good to know that it was a favorite for you!
