Why the Slash Brainstorm is the Ultimate All-Mountain Snowboard

Hello, fellow snowboard enthusiasts! Sissi here from Homebase Tirol, and today I want to talk about why the Slash Brainstorm snowboard is my absolute favorite when it comes to all-mountain snowboarding.

As the owner of a cozy mountain chalet in the breathtaking Paznaun Valley, I’ve had the pleasure of hosting many guests from around the world who share my passion for snowboarding. One of the unique aspects of Homebase Tirol is our partnership with Slash Snowboards, founded by the legendary Austrian snowboarder Gigi Rüf. This allows our guests to test and buy a range of high-quality Slash snowboards, including the all-mountain superstar, the Slash Brainstorm.

About Slash Snowboards

Before I delve into the reasons that make the Slash Brainstorm the best all-mountain snowboard, let me share a little background about Slash Snowboards. Owned by Gigi Rüf, a professional snowboarder known for his innovative and stylish riding style, Slash is dedicated to producing eco-friendly, high-quality snowboards and equipment. Gigi’s commitment to sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of snowboarding makes Slash a brand I am proud to support.

Top Reasons Why Slash Brainstorm is the Best All-Mountain Snowboard

Versatility: Conquering the Mountain with Confidence

The Slash Brainstorm stands out for its exceptional versatility, allowing riders to conquer various terrains and conditions with confidence. This adaptability makes it the ideal choice for those who want a single board that can handle everything the mountain has to offer.

Shape and Camber Profile

The Brainstorm’s unique directional twin shape features a slightly longer nose than tail, providing excellent float in powder without compromising the ability to ride switch. This shape caters to riders who like to explore both groomed runs and off-piste adventures, as it handles seamlessly on various snow conditions.

Its hybrid camber profile combines traditional camber underfoot with rocker in the nose and tail. The camber section delivers powerful edge control, stability at high speeds, and excellent pop for ollies and jumps. The rocker in the nose and tail ensures better float in powder and a catch-free, playful feel when riding in the park.

All-Mountain Performance

Thanks to its unique shape, camber profile, and edge technology, the Slash Brainstorm performs impressively in various terrains, from groomed runs and powder stashes to park laps and natural features. Its adaptability to different riding styles and conditions makes it a must-have for snowboarders looking for a versatile, all-mountain companion that can handle anything the mountain throws their way.

Flex and Response

The Brainstorm features a medium flex, providing a perfect balance between stability at high speeds and playfulness for freestyle riding. Its responsive design allows for quick, precise turns and effortless edge-to-edge transitions. The combination of a lightweight core and high-quality materials ensures that the board remains lively and snappy underfoot.

Sustainable Construction: Going the Extra Mile for the Environment

In line with Slash’s commitment to eco-friendliness, the Brainstorm is built using sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, setting it apart from many other snowboard brands. The board features a Forever Wood Core, which combines FSC certified wood and recycled materials, ensuring that the wood used in the core comes from responsibly managed forests. This not only helps to reduce the demand for virgin timber but also promotes reforestation efforts and responsible forest management.

The Bio-Resin used in the construction process is another important eco-friendly aspect of the Brainstorm. This innovative resin is made from plant-based materials, replacing traditional petroleum-based resins. Bio-Resin reduces the board’s carbon footprint and results in lower greenhouse gas emissions during production.

Slash also focuses on minimizing waste in the production process by using sublimated graphics for the board’s top sheet, which reduces the amount of ink and solvents needed. Additionally, the company is dedicated to continuously exploring new sustainable materials and technologies to further reduce the environmental impact of their products.

By choosing a Slash snowboard like the Brainstorm, you’re not only getting a top-notch product but also contributing to a greener future for the sport we all love. As snowboarders, we have a responsibility to protect the mountains and the environment that provide us with endless joy and adventure, and Slash’s dedication to sustainability allows us to do just that.

Proven Performance

The Slash Brainstorm has been tried and tested by countless riders, including our guests at Homebase Tirol. The positive feedback we’ve received is a testament to the Brainstorm’s exceptional performance and reliability. The board’s ability to deliver in various conditions and terrain types makes it a favorite among both amateur and professional riders.


In conclusion, the Slash Brainstorm snowboard is a true all-mountain champion, combining versatility, performance, and eco-friendliness into a single, amazing package. If you ever find yourself visiting Homebase Tirol, I encourage you to test one of our Slash snowboards, including the Brainstorm, and experience the difference for yourself.
