Splitboarding, is it for you?

May 20, 2012 1:01:39 PM PDT


By now many of those engrained in the snowboard culture have come across the newest form of the sport: splitboarding. Designed for those hiking for their turns and constantly searching for fresh lines, splitboarding has been taking the industry by storm. The concept is fairly simple. Take a snowboard, cut it down the middle, add a metal edge, install clips to hold the board together, and suddenly you have both a set of skis and a snowboard. Putting the board to use is a little more interesting. When you un-clip the board you are left with essentially two skis. A skin is then placed on each "ski" allowing the ski to grip to the snow rather than slide. You can now use your grippy skis to start hiking to whatever terrain your heart desires, no snow shoes needed. When you reach your desired drop in point take the skins off the skis, clip them back together to make your snowboard and you're almost set. All you have to do now is set the bindings up. Splitboards use a special binding that allows it to swivel and work as a ski binding when hiking and then pivot so they can be used as snowboard bindings when you're ready to take off down the mountain. This allows you to bring less gear, more quickly switch from hiking mode to riding mode and even makes for easier hiking.
