The Skeleton Key has been in the range for a few years now after moving into the mainline from the family tree range and aren't we glad. A directional board that is a whole lot of fun, with the short tail you can really throw it around the mountain. If the snow gets soft, set your boots back and it comes alive in powder.
Trojan were lucky enough to get to use this board at a Burton retreat at falls creek and again in Japan.
