    Gorgeous first day. How did you end up on TLT6s, Phantoms and an Amplid Milligram straight off?

    Gorgeous first day. How did you end up on TLT6s, Phantoms and an Amplid Milligram straight off?

    Yup,kind of dreamy (and pricey) setup i know…

    I have been a skier for 40 years but my left knee (broken 3 times) has become unstable for serious skiing.
    I almost dislocated it again last February and i decided to call it quits and switch over to snowboard.
    I had ridden before (two seasons ,about 15 years ago…) but the transition is going great.
    I already had TLT6’s for rando skiing and i know how important weight/stride is for the uphill so the Phantoms+Milligram seemed like a good choice…and they are,they work together so nicely!.
    BTW the Milligram i got for 850€ at Sport Conrad,still expensive but good price vs the +1000€ they cost normally.
    Selling some ski gear (i have lots of it after so many years) has helped too.

    That makes more sense. New to splitting, but not new to the backcountry.

    I also ride on TLT6s, Phantoms, a Milligram, and a busted up knee.

    Good luck with the transition and the knee.

    Wow looks really nice! Where have you been, tyrolean alps?
    I ride Phantoms, too, on a Lab carbon split. It’s really a killer setup!

    No Alps 🙂
    That is Valle de Aran in the spanish Pyrenees.There is a ski resort called Baqueira-Beret nearby.
    Not much snowpack thickness this season but the quality was surprisingly good,avalanche risk at 1 (i have never seen a 1 with powder…) and great sun and temp.

    I am so glad i risked buying this largely unknown setup.When i asked other splitboarders around here they knew nothing about Phantoms+Hard(but soft:) boots.They mostly recommended against it for millions of reasons…which were all wrong 🙂

    these mountains look really cool and it seemed like not many other people have been around, nice 🙂
    I have never met someone in person riding AT boots on a snowboard, but I don’t meet many snowboarders anyway…

    Nice Marc! Perfect equipment choices! It’s great to hear that snowboarding will keep you in the mountains.
    And welcome to the forum!

    Always nice to see some fellow Europeans on here!

    After much research, experimentation and consideration, I have decided adulthood is not for me. Thank you for the opportunity.
