Yeah. Don’t forget the asterisk! LoL #notsplitboarding 😉 December 16, 2013 at 1:11 am #672834 barrows 1490 Posts Also, small approach skis work great on a groomed resort up track, not so much when breaking trail in deep snow in the backcountry… December 16, 2013 at 1:22 am #672835 ShredLife 85 Posts 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. December 16, 2013 at 2:36 am #672836 Rico in AZ 559 Posts @bcrider wrote: We’ve been having a blast up here. Such a fun event!

Especially sidebar commentary! 😉 December 16, 2013 at 3:28 am #672837 SplitterX 104 Posts 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 December 16, 2013 at 5:46 am #672838 christoph benells 717 Posts im reading the results for the splitboard race and it says nothing of austin smith winning. it looks like it was a fella named gabe toyafre. anyone know him?

December 16, 2013 at 6:19 am #672841 nwboarder82 166 Posts 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. Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 27 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
