Only grizzly open today. January 6, 2012 at 3:18 am #646050 moskitov 22 Posts after having thought about the conditions the entire day and reading all the reports, it is sadly that me and my buddy will bail on this splitfest… The Sea-to-Sky area is announced to settle quite a bit, so my gas money will more go in the direction of whistler… (shame on me I know…) have fun peops, and stay safe out there!

Al and I were stoked to demo and show folks some Chimera splitboards. I got to ride my new 157cm Unicorn Chaser in the pow and loved it. Snow conditions ended up being fresh and fun and plenty powdery, nary a crust in site. Much thanks to Joey and Aaron for showing us around, you guys clearly have it dialed. Karkis, your slide show was killer man! Thanks to Wade for assembling the splitfest. Greg thx for the fuel when I needed it – you should split your next 2 million feet instead of skiing it. Y’all were gracious hosts. Can’t forget Swanny from LA. My first trip to Rogers Pass, why haven’t I been there before, i love it there, I’ll be back. And here’s the grand prize winners; dammit I only got a chapstick. January 9, 2012 at 4:48 am #646057 SpeedyManiac 89 Posts Awesome splitfest! Met some new peeps, saw friends I hadn’t seen in awhile, checked out some gear and rode some pow! Feel sorry for anyone that bailed as conditions were awesome. Crust was only noticeable right at the highway and avy conditions were pretty good. Spent Saturday up in the Hermit area where we got up into the alpine. The long walk (ended up 1100m above the highway) was worth it as we were treated to blower pow and some fun noboard lines. Today I headed up the Cheops area to Napolean Spur for a wicked avalanche chute that led right down to the highway. All in all, a great weekend! January 9, 2012 at 5:50 am #646058 libtechsplit 198 Posts Whoops, sorry if my fear mongering scared anyone off. i mentioned the crust mostly as a consideration for decision making – as punishment i got to deal with about 500 ft of it below avalanche crest on saturday. but everything above that was pretty awesome , and snow today was stellar! thanks to everybody i rode with, i had a great time – and thanks again to wade for being the longhair mastermind of it all. :thatrocks: January 9, 2012 at 2:21 pm #646059 PowSlashingWigley 72 Posts Such a sicccck weekend!!!

I gotta lay down one massive thanks to Emily and the gang at Prior. I got to roll down thick pow on Cheops Glades and the Hourglass on a brand new Fissile 172 demo with new Karakorams and new G3’s….. WOW was is it ever bitchin, what a phenomenal set up. A part of me died at the end day when turning it back over. I wish I had the funds to real in both a prior bc for mountaineering and a fissile for pow slayin….. Since I aint got the funds just the bc is now on the radar. Greg Hill and Kyle Miller, awesome presentations and great speaking with those gentlemen, inspirational is an understatement. Karkis and Strain great stuff. Finished the weekend off at the NRC gully, 600m of face blastin chaos right back to the parking lot. Everyone I rode with and hung out with, you are all absolute top shelf, till next year…. Slim/Marc January 9, 2012 at 5:17 pm #646061 bcrider 4149 Posts Sounds RAD, bummed I missed it. Wade, let me know if you want this thread back in the main forum for a while. Congrats on a great event. The sport thanks you. :thatrocks: January 9, 2012 at 5:48 pm #646062 breaktrail 18 Posts Big thanks to Wade and Prior for hosting the event, it was a memorable experience for all that attended. Also a big thanks to the sponsors for helping raise the funds for the CAF, anyone that donated to the raffle deserves a huge round of applause. Thank you mother nature for the snowpack and all the people I toured with (Patrick, Greg, Rick, Marc, Jason). Shortcut road is a fucking dead end. January 9, 2012 at 7:05 pm #646063 scoho 47 Posts Such an awesome weekend! Big thanks to wade for putting this on again and to everyone that came out to shred. So cool to see that many like-minded splitboarders in one place. Stuck to the below treeline for most of the trip but was rewarded with many many faceshots. Favorite spot of the weekend was off glacier crest to the best pillows I have ever ridden top to bottom. See you in the mtns!

I might throw up the much longer version later. Still gotta finish editing. Wade thanks for putting on such a kick ass event :clap: Sorry for the country accent I am originally from the south HA!

And props to all the splitters from far & away who showed up, played safe and got their shred on. Had a kickass time riding with old friends (numbernine, vapor) & new friends (uriedog, libtechsplit, jason). Sorry to those who I didn’t get an opportunity to ride with, or just geek out afterwords over beers & splitboards, a weekend just isn’t enough time! That was Pontus January 10, 2012 at 6:11 am #646068 jcocci 699 Posts Yes, what a great weekend. Thanks to Wade and all the folks who made it possible. Was tough getting in the car this AM and driving 8 hours home when there was 6″ of fresh at the hotel. Will post some pics once I go through them.
