Family Tree Trick Pilot Snowboard

There's no such thing as restricted airspace for the Burton Family Tree Trick Pilot Snowboard. Built to be an all-mountain beast, but bred with the heart of a freestyle board, the Trick Pilot loves hitting the jump line in the park, popping off of sidehits, and spinning into powder landings.

Its medium-stiff flex ensures it can hold up to laid-out carves and high-speed steeps, without feeling like a plank when you're surfing pow turns and buttering around the mountain. PurePop Camber is camber from insert-to-insert, but just outside the feet are subtle flat zones leading into early-rise rocker, giving the board a smoother, less catchy feel so you don't get severely punished for the slightest under-rotation.The Superfly II core uses lightweight woods that specifically target strategic areas to drop weight and increase pop, and Dualzone EGD adds edge control by placing perpendicular strips of wood along the edges. Burton threw in an ultralight Carbon I-Beam for serious pop, so you can boost off everything in sight.

  • Powerful all-mountain weapon with a freestyle soul
  • PurePop Camber offers pop and response without the catchiness
  • Medium-stiff flex for stability, response, and power
  • Twin shape allows unrestricted switch trickery
  • Carbon I-Beam enhances pop with minimal added weight
  • Squeezebox profiling enhances board control and pop
  • Sintered WFO base is ultra-fast and ultra-durable
  • Infinite Ride ensures board feels same from day 1 to 100

Is this the perfect board...?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was hesitant to pull the trigger on this board at first. It's marketed as a big mountain board and not as an "all-around" board. I should NOT have waited. Let me explain why this is a five-star board all the way around.



This board handles any kind of condition. It crushes the ungroomed chop and spring slush. It carves icy hard pack, and it EXCELS in the powder. It's more flexible than the Custom or Custom X, so it floats way better in the deep stuff, comparably. The flat areas under the feet provide a super solid feel. Almost surreal.



There is more camber to this than the Custom or Custom X. That lends to being super springy. The early rocker makes it easy to butter on tip or tail. And remember, this is a directional twin, so you can ride it fakie just as well as forward. I wouldn't be afraid to take this in the park.



I had read some reviews that this board doesn't carve as tightly as others because of the less aggressive sidecut and the mid-width size. My experience is that this board will carve as tight as you can under any condition. Again, it's marketed as a "big mountain" board, but the reality is that it works anywhere.



If there is no new snow and you're taking laps in the park, maybe take your Custom X. Any other time, I would take this board. It rocks. If you want one board to rule them all, this is the one.

Is this the perfect board...?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It's still early in the season but I've spent about 10 days on the Trick Pilot and I'm blown away. The combination of a twin shape, pure pop camber and squeezebox but add the stiffness and edge hold of a bigger mountain board and you get an incredible shape that can turn any conditions into a fun time.
