I am wondering if it is possible to ski down the hill with a toboggan with the board split as a pair of skis. Thanks December 5, 2011 at 6:56 pm #648354 B-P 134 Posts Possible? yes, i suppose it is technically possible. However with a free heel and soft boots it is rather hard to control, and without a TON of practice, I personally would not trust myself to ski on my split for any real length of slope. Especially with someone else safety at risk.

Add the sketchyness of of skiing in split mode and I would say it would be pretty dam hard. A bigger concern I would say would be getting approval from the ski resort/your head patroller to work with a split board. Dont get me wrong, I’m a die hard snowboarder but I’ll be the first to admit that a splitboarder cant maneuver and keep up as easily as skiers. Heck even telemarkers have a hard time patrolling free heeled. If you can however pull it off, power to ya! Keep us posted! Cheers.

There are very few splitters who can ski a split. Wysplit, Jivestick , Nomad,and …..?????????? And when I say ski, I mean enjoying it and making it look good. Which you would have to do to get your hill to approve you in split mode ( passing the ski test ) and I have seen a lot of splitters as an injured guest I dont think I would want a ride down from a splitter in split mode Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
