Hello and welcome to my Jones Mountain Twin 2017 review.

The Ideal Rider for the Jones Mountain Twin
The Mountain Twin is one of the better do-it-all snowboards going around.
So, if you’re someone who likes to ride a variety of styles and a variety of different terrain (backcountry, groomers, park, hard snow conditions powder etc), then this board can handle that kind of variety better than most all-mountain boards out there.
It’s not really for beginners, but anyone from intermediate and all the way up to expert will likely dig this board, if they are looking to own just one board but want to do everything on it.

Conditions: Groomed – hard packed but slushy on top. Mostly slushy conditions. Very slow conditions in general – “cascade concrete” for sure. Which made it a point and shoot day in order to keep up speed on anything that wasn’t steep.
