This board rides the backcountry well, has enough float and turns easy. However, don’t take the Barracuda out for full grip rides in long carve turns pistes with icy conditions. This board is for the powder riders. Burton’s Barracuda board gives the best of itself off-piste. Nut still handles reasonably well on the more groomed slopes. Powder boards like the Burton Barracuda have become more popular. Especially among riders that have the opportunity to hunt for fresh powder. With its medium flex, the Burton Barracuda offers the perfect balance between control and a loose feel. Capable of ripping any terrain or condition.
