The 4th annual Mt Baker Splitfest will be held on March 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013. The sponsors are lining up and plans are falling into place. The event is hosted by Chair 9 again. We will also have a tent for demos this year! We will have the Meet & Greet on Friday evening and the raffle on Saturday night. Last year we raised over $4600 for NWAC. For raffle prizes, we have multiple splitboards, bindings, skins, packs, and much more.

We have a great list of sponsors so far:
Karakoram
Jones Snowboards
Venture Snowboards
Voile
Arbor Collective
Lib-Tech
Prior Snowboards
Spark R&D
G3
BCA
One Ball Jay
Frequency
Mt Baker Vacation Rentals
K2 Snowboarding
Chimera Snowboards
SickSplits
Chair 2 Board Sports
Backdrop Sports
And of course Splitboard.com!

Accommodations are up to the attendees as usual. Check out the accommodations page for places to rent and Chair 9 now has a 6 room lodge available. There is also lots of camping in the area. We are continuously updating the website http://www.splitfest.com and check out the Facebook page for random updates https://www.facebook.com/MtBakerSplitfest

Cheers and we hope to see you there!

Hey there,

were going to head down your way for splitfest and were wondering do most people tour from the resort or do you go elsewhere? also for lift tickets if necessary is there a "1 ride up special" or is there somewhere to get discounted lift tickets. same questions for stevens pass as that is our next stop. Coming out from edmonton, alberta, canada so have no idea about the area

If you decide to tour near the resort it's a short skin until you are out of the resort so you don't need a lift ticket. Unless you work at another resort I don't know of any ticket discounts at Baker.
Stevens Pass has bunch of different discounts. Check out their website to see which one works for you.

Glad you guys are making the trek!

Nice, I plan on going. It would be easier to find this thread in the "events" section.

Last year I had a sweet demo of a brand new Arbor board that I would love to own.

@russman. Picked from last year's thread:

My goal this year is to hustle more of the Cali/Eastern-Sierra-Gnarheads/Cali-Splitfest-kooks to make the pilgrimage!


I hope that goal still stands!? Since I just booked my ticket!
Rumor has it that JimW is working on it too ;)

Any solo peeps heading to the fest? I've never been but since all of my friends are skiers, I'll be by myself. I realize it'll probably be "easy" to go to the party on Friday night and find people to go out with but it's not easy for me to just announce "does anyone want to take me with them?!". Also, where do most people stay? Hotels, their cars, camping? Anything else I need to know?

Thanks!

JNK,

I will probably be alone and looking for people to split with as well. Not sure if I can convince the wife to go up with me for the weekend. I was wondering the same things, where are the best places to stay? I am sure there are some cool places that have cabins to rent for the weekend like there are near Crystal and Stevens. Guess I need to do some research.

Hi guys, there are lots of places to stay in the area. I'm partial to indoor plumbing so I'm staying at the Snowater condos instead of camping. :) The condos are easy walking/stumbling distance from Chair 9 and there are pools and hot tubs.
Some other suggestions:
Chair 9 just opened up a 6 room motel called the Blue T Lodge (http://bluetlodge.com/). It shares the Chair 9 parking lot.
Two of the companies I have had good dealings with are http://www.mtbakervacationrentals.com/ and http://www.bakeraccommodations.com/. Depends on your price range though.
There is always http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/washington/wa-northwest/mt-baker
And if you haven't found anything you like the Mt Baker Ski area site has even more options listed:
