Best Powder Boards of 2016/2017 – K2 Party Platter Review

The Party Platter’s deceptive shape is stuffed with the float and stability of a much larger board. At first we were prepared to write it off as a low-angle pow deck good for tight turns, trees, and slow speeds, but this board made a statement on bigger terrain. It was surprisingly steady at speed, held a solid edge, and even soaked up a bit of airtime. Built with K2’s Volume Shift shaping process, the board has increased waist width, decreased length, more taper from tip to tail, a setback stance, elongated nose, and blunt tail. We found this chubbier outline to mash through soft snow and bumps like a monster truck with the agility of a sports car.

The pre-curved piece of carbon fiber between the feet powered up ollies and added some torsional stability. The thinned-out tip design, which is visible as the board goes from sidewall to cap construction along the edge, lightened this already small board’s swing weight and pronounced the flex. For creative riders focused on fun over far-out and fast lines, consider a ride on the Party Platter.

Just bought a K2 Cool Bean, what’s the difference with this board?

Tom Sharpe says:

Can I ride this as a everyday board if I’m a bit short?

SideWays Gear Guys says:

It is not the best there are a lot better pow boards out there. I rode the Jones Storm Chaser and Springbeak Tree Hunter at Eagle Pass and they are much much better than the platter. Both boards turning is much more refined. The platter cannot take big drops.
