    I am new to splitboarding, looking to meet others in New Hampshire/Maine area. I have been snowboarding for ever and have hiking/backpacking experience. Looking to learn more about splitboarding and looking for people to meet up with.

    If you’re avy savy there is lots of terrain in midwinter. Just be prepped for it with good gear and good judgement. I caretake up at tucks so if there was interest I was rattlin around the idea of an east coast split fest. Ive already been brewing a stock pile of beer for the upcoming winter so why not share the fruits. West side of Mt Washington including the ammonosuc and burts ravine are good. Any and all splitters are welcome! Save the tribe!

    Jumpin in here, also new splitboarder looking for tours/ good peoples anywhere in ME/NH/VT this winter. Been riding for about 7-8 years now and currently finishing up my first DIY split. Cut up a 163w Ride Highlife and eager to see how I did. Also planning on splitting one for my lady but haven’t decided on a board. Any suggestions or know any New England female splitters with some feedback?

    Live just outside of Boston, ride all over the place, mostly hit up Cannon last year since it was so good. I’ve been a mid-week rider for the last 10 years, also been working in a ski/ snowboard shop in Framingham for the last 10 years. I plan on continuing to ride midweek if possible and if I go on a weekend to tour, because I can’t stand crowds. They scare me.

    My quiver right now consists of 156 Skate banana (first year production), 2011/12 Travis Rice HP 157, 10/11 Ride Highlife 158, 09/10 Ride Slackcountry 164. Also have a 10/11 Never Summer Heritage 158 which I’m probably going to sell.

    I absolutely cannot wait for it to start snowing, had the itch to start riding for well over a month now…

    Yeah, I live in Portland. Usually ride Sunday Riv/Sugarloaf. This past winter have been to Saddleback a few times and the occasional night at Shawnee if there is fresh snow. Have been riding like 18 years or something.

    As for avy knowledge, I am pretty much a beginner. Have carried peeps, probe and shovel riding out west at Baker, Big Sky and Bridger. Looking to take some type of avy safety class this winter and purchase my own gear.

    As for my splitboard…I am finishing up DIY Burton Supermodel Split.

    Sorry if I have not been on here to reply.

    Looking forward to this winter for certain.

    Quiver: Burton Custom V Rocker 163 for all around fun, Fish 160 for pow, Supermodel X 164 for frozen.

    So stoked to see this thread. Started splittin 4 years ago and for years I didn’t see any fellow splitboarders which would prompt strange looks from hikers and skiers. As I mentioned before I work up in Tucks so drop by for a beer and pie on your way to the Sherburne ski trail or higher up. My quiver consists of a home split Arbor element and a factory defect Prior Backcountry that I bought from a “dude” in Vancouver when I lived out there.

    yo ‘livefreeorshred’, will definitely be coming out that way this winter. I have hiked tuckermans in spring before. I’m definitely interested in getting out there in real winter and learning about avy safety etc. Maybe Shurburn Ski trail as a starter or Gulf of Slides.

    I have a spot or two in Western Maine that I have explored hiking in summer that I am interested in checking in winter on split, nothing near Tuckermans/Mt Wash size.

    You rode on weekends usually? Sunday river usually. As for avy. I need to take another class been in an avalanch in tucks in like 93. Scary. My dad went over lunch rocks and only got a cut on his nose. Got avy gear. Ridden all over in deep snow baker,alpental, Stevens, backcomb, Val d users France, lived in Seattle for a couple years swell as crested butte,co for two years. Lots of backcountry. Ready to explore more in the east. Just to get off the resorts for a day. I want to do some overnights this winter. Anyone down? We need to have an east coast splitty committee

    Yeah Shawnee peak is always cold and icy. Slowest lift ever. Want to hit up saddleback this year I heard it’s sick on powder days. Also have a friend with place at the loaf. I guess there is some good backcountry around there to be had. So stoked for winter. It is so fucking hot today. I’m over it

    Totally down for an east coast split committee. I know there’s some people up by Jay that do a good amount of hiking, and I’m sure I can find a few more from ski industry contacts… Anyone ever been to Magic mtn in Southern VT? I know they’re friendly to earn your turns and I think they even run free tours.

    I’m totally beginner to avy safety or any of that, but I do have some gear (probe, shovel and beacon) and I’m down for an overnight trip. Only 1 way to learn and get better!
