    My son and I should be there! I’ve always wanted to check it out. We’re stoked.

    Any potential floor space? 🙂

    Just registered online for the derby in the split division. I guess I better start practicing my transitions. Hope to see some of you there.

    From what I hear, the split competition is like a Chinese Uphill. You might be better off just sprinting with your board intact.

    Also, small approach skis work great on a groomed resort up track, not so much when breaking trail in deep snow in the backcountry…

    one of my buddies mistakenly bought a pair of mt approach skis and they snapped at the folding hinge making them unusable on the first tour, less than 2 miles in.

    maybe work for pro athletes working off of snowmobiles just looking to throw hammers but for the typical rider they’re a terrible choice.

    regardless, the price is nothing but ridiculous – made even worse by the poor quality materials used.

    Austin rips hard, but mt approach = clown shoes. and not a splitboard.

    I have to ask? Did Austin also pack those aproach skis on his back on his way back down the course? Or were they left at the top?

    Fast and smooth

    So, how does MTN Approach Skis qualifies under the Splitboard Category? :scratch: Good thing he didn’t win. That would be a huge insult to the splitboard community.
