You're just jealous because you don't have one. You know you want one...

Only if we can ride it backwards after forgetting our goggles and losing some kind of electronic device on the Plateau. Oh, and Melanonos are mandatory for the photo op.

The important stuff:

Image

Burton 2004 Custom 165 split on the left. Yes, using the overengineered and freeze-prone Burton interface system, which I will continue using until I run out of spare parts. On the right, a 2004 Malolo 162 waiting to get finished. I've cut it but haven't gotten around to finishing it. Can't wait to ride that thing in the pow. Oh, and a 2004 Demo 9 in the background. 2004 was a good year.

Misc:

Image

2002 Burton BMC 162 on the left. Great ride, but what's up with the cap construction? Beat that one up pretty good this year, it's now the rock board. In the middle is a vintage 95 Burton Air. Still going strong. That board was with me on my first real bc trip, to Shasta in 98. Cool to see that they're making the Air again. On the right, a 98 Burton FL Project 162. FL stands for "F***ing Light", which it is. Great backcountry board, stiff and light. One of the best boards they ever made IMO.

Oh, and on the right, a snowskate I picked up at one of the local shops a couple years ago. They were blowing them out; I guess they weren't that popular. My new goal for this season is to ride that thing down Third Pillar. At 5 PM, on ice. knucklesplitter, want to come with? :)

On a side note, I'm obviously a Burton fan, but has anyone checked out the 07 catalog? Their split only gets a tiny 1" by 2" picture w/short description! That's it. Not even a full pic, which every other board in their lineup has. Lame.

My wife doesn't think I'm a geek for splitboarding, she thinks it's rad and supports me in it 100%. She thinks I'm a geek for getting online to see if anyone's posted another picture of their quiver, if you know what I mean.

Ok, I guess I'll play along. BTW, my girlfriend thinks I am a total geek for this...

Image

On the left is my every day board, a '03 NS Legacy; and on the right is my rock board, an '04 Burton Bullet; But in the middle is my pride and joy, a '94(?) Burton Craig Kelly 169cm, in imaculate condition, and yes it does come out for the big powder days a few times a season; and on the floor is my '06 Voile SD Freeride, my new stairway to heaven.

As you can see, I am not about to give up riding lifts, but imagine in there somewhere a Never Summer split next year!
