Hey everyone who attended the Silverton Splitfest. We had another successful event, and looking forward already to next year. Thanks to everyone who came out! We are going to use this thread to post all the pictures from the 2014 Splitfest.

Lots of demos this year, having our own area for sponsors to set up was a nice touch.

Hope to see you all next year!

Great job with the event once again you guys!
Keffler, HfT, Summersgone and I got an early start on the fest. The snow the week before left for some great conditions for the couloirs. The whole week turned out great with blue skies and corn by the end of the trip.

Awesome work incorporating the dog into your crossing.

Looks like the Venture crew has stayed busy. The deck with the owl on it looks to be the same artist who did the skylar.

It was a really, really great time. The terrain around Silverton holds it's own with just about anywhere. It is also fairly vast. The surface was just scratched.

Nice work fellas. And all this time I thought Colorado was nothing but roadside laps :wink: . I love the dry bags for creek crossings. My pack just got heavier.
