Splitfest 2014 is on - September 12 to 14!
Splitfest 2014 is on ... your chance to explore the world of backcountry snowboarding beyond the bootpack! Join us for another great weekend, offering you the chance to try out splitboarding and check out the latest developments and equipment. As always the main aim is to get get the maximum number of backcountry snowboarders together in one place and have a good time! So far the formula has been working pretty well and this year we'll again be keeping the registration fee as low as possible to encourage maximum participation (with thanks to our team of sponsors and volunteers for that!). And once again the venue will be Temple Basin .. of course! Splitfest is your best opportunity of the year to give splitboarding a go, meet new touring partners, brush up on your technique, or perhaps all of the above! Demo gear is available to try all weekend long and there's also lessons for beginners, workshops on touring techniques and avalanche awareness, and organised tours to join - all free with your registration. Thanks to our line up of sponsors there's also a stack of prizes up for grabs too .. as if you needed any any further excuses to come on up! This is also a great chance to check out Temple Basin ski area with a crew who know the mountain well, plus experience staying on-mountain in surroundings second to none. There's great terrain for all levels - from complete beginner to seriosly extreme and everything in between. Plus .. great terrain for touring. Splitfest is now into its 4th year and so far we've been blessed powder conditions and good vibes 3 years in a row. This year we'll be expecting more of the same!
