Who is the Resort Twin Best Suited To?
The Spring Break Resort Twin is most suited to someone looking for a freestyle focused board to take all over the mountain. And for something that's a little on the playful side of the spectrum and better for short, snappy turns and easy pop, than it is for big aggressive carves and high speeds.
Whilst it's a board that I found easy to ride, I wouldn't say it's beginner material but should be OK for a lower end intermediate rider, unless you're a lighter rider, in which case, it still might feel a bit stiff, if you're lower intermediate.

O.k. let’s take a more detailed look at what the Resort Twin is capable of.

24 hour snow: 0" (0cm)
48 hour snow: 0" (0cm)
7 day snow: 4" (11cm)
On groomer: Soft packed and bordering on slushy. But not ultra slow or sticky or anything. Got a touch slushier towards the end of the day, but not by much. Was pretty consistent.
Off groomer: Decent enough. Borderline slushy but not quite. Not ideal but OK.

*based on a sample size of around 250 models that I’ve weighed in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 & 2024 models. So the Resort Twin is pretty much bang on average. And on snow it felt normal too - maybe just a touch lighter than normal on snow.
We didn't have any powder to test in on the day but based on feel and specs, it's going to be pretty average.
It's got some rocker in the tip and tail, which will help a little, but it's a centered twin, so never going to be amazing in powder.
Carving & Turning
Carving: It does OK at slower speed carves, but doesn't hold a high speed carve super well. More of a snappy turner than an aggressive carving type of board.
Ease of Turning/Slashing: Really easy to turn with this board. Really snappy, easy to initiate turns on and easy to slash.
Maneuverability at slow speeds: Nice and quick edge-to-edge when riding slow. Easy to maneuver.
Catchiness: Not catchy. If the most uncatchy board in the world was a 10, it wouldn't be a 10, but it would be a solid 8.
Stable to a point, but gets wobbly at moderately high speeds. Don't have to be going super fast before it starts feeling a little unstable.
Crud: Gets pretty chattery in crud/chunder. It's good for making corrections when you do get off your line in crud, but is pretty easily thrown off its line.
Trees/Bumps: Nice and quick edge-to-edge so it's fun and easy to weave through trees and bumps.
Overall fun and snappy. Best for smaller jumps and side hits.
Pop: Really easy to access its pop and overall pop is decent too, without being super epic or anything.
Approach: Easy to make adjustments but not as stable for faster approaches.
Landing: Overall good but more suitable to small to medium landings than bigger landings.
Side-hits: This board was so much fun on side hits!
Small jumps/Big jumps: Best for small to medium jumps. Not quite stable enough at higher speeds for bigger jumps.
Naturally good for riding switch, being a true twin. Transitions were easy too.
Really good for spins. Easy pop, easy setup and landed and setup well in switch.
Really decent. Maneuverable and snappy approach. Easy to setup, felt decent on boxes/rails and popped off nicely.
The tip and tail press nice and easily. It's not a board that presses even when you're not trying to, but it's pretty easy - don't need to put much effort into it. And you can lock in pretty well too.
Score Breakdown and Final Verdict

Contribution to Final Score
TOTAL after normalizing
The Resort Twin was a super fun, snappy, lively board that had effortless pop and snap for turns. It's not something that will have you elbow deep carving at high speeds without washing out, but for using the whole mountain as a park (or the park itself), it excels.
And you can still lay down carves on it, just don't expect it to be epic for aggressive high speed carves.
