Hi all, just wanted to see how many Norwegian splitboarders is on this forum :D
Would be cool to hear where in Norway you are located, what you are riding - and where.

I live in Akershus. Im new at splitboarding, however i've ridden snowboards for many years.
Im in the process of splitting a LibTech 1986 Snow Mullet (i call it the "Banana Split" :bananas: ). New Spark Blaze bindings is ordered, and cant wait to get it ready for the mountains.
My first board was a Burton Elite - but thats a looong time ago:

If anyone has one for sale i would be interested in buying so i can hang it on my wall :D

Hi.

This is my first season splitting, but have been riding for about 10years.

i'm from Karmøy (rogaland) but i now live in Volda so i can live close to the mountains.

My splitboard is now a Prior spearhead 172, but i'll probably buy a solution next year because i'm very happy with my flagship solid board:)

Happy splitting!

Hi!!

Looking to buy my first splitboard. Still deciding between DIY or just going for a full package.
Located in Bergen. So my solid board riding is mostly at Voss/Myrkdalen and Eikedalen.

Hei!

Kom tilfeldigvis over bloggen din. Satse på du trives i Nord da!
Kjører selv i Myrkdalen hvor du hadde to miniturer til Finnbunuten. Har ikke splitboard selv enda, så har drevet å gått til fots opp der med brettet på ryggen. :banghead:

Splitboarding is growing here in Norway, and we have dealers with Voile/Prior/Jones over here now. theres certainly no lack of good riding areas either. if you live on the right side of the mountains that is 8)

Hei!

I'm planning on moving to Norway later in the year for work and have a number of options on where I can base myself, either Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger or Oslo. My main reason for relocating is to be closer to the mountains (currently live in Western Australia - can't get further from a mountain) and to get some serious splitboarding done.

Where would be my best bet for good snow and terrain. From my own research it would seem Trondheim is closer to major mountain centres but I'm keen on any information you guys might be able to give me.

thanks

From Bergen you can get to the Voss area (W/NW from Bergen) in about 1,5 hrs. Awesome mountains there. Bergen-Sogndal is about 3,5 hrs (Sogndal has some of the best "fun-terrain" in the country in my opinion)

Stavanger: roughly 3 hrs to Røldal/Haukeli which has an amazing snowfall but too much "weather" and not enough treeruns for grey days. Stavanger also has some good surfing spots if you're into it.

Trondheim: Havent been much up there, but Oppdal is the nearest "major" resort. There's a lot of mellow mountains south of Trondheim, with Sunndal and Romsdal being the nearest "proper" mountain areas (3-4 hrs I guess).

Oslo: You don't want to live there (in my opinion :-) )

thanks for the feedback. Bergen could be the go as my wife is applying to the university there as well. 1.5 hour drive sounds a lot better than 6 hour flight which is my current closest hill !

not sure I'd handle surfing Norwegian water temps but I'll give it a go. am hoping to get in some kitesurfing too.

can't wait to get there and check it out.
