Splitfest 2012 goes off at Temple

Despite the average weather forecast a solid crew turned out for Splitfest 2012 up at Temple Basin and were mighty happy they did! Equally impressive was a huge range of gear the latest splitboards, hand made boards and even hand made bindings all on show. The format was the same as last year with demo gear, split boarding lessons and a snow safety workshop all on offer, plenty of partying down at the UC ski lodge and all round good vibes for a weekend in the mountains. Plus there was a ton of snow! 
After a week of storms the mountain had picked over metre of new snow and was looking a treat. It was still snowing early Saturday but by mid morning the clouds had cleared and the Temple crew started opening up the terrain right on cue. After busy day tracking out the pow and enjoying the night skiing on Saturday another 10cm of fresh then turned up overnight. The Sunday arvo barbie and prize-giving came around all too soon but after two solid days of riding, swapping yarns and experimenting with gear we were well stoked with the weekend!
