Hey all SB.com members, we have officially opened registration for the Silverton Splitfest!

There is one registration cost of $60 for attendees this year. We will not be providing lodging this year during the event, all attendees will be responsible for their own lodging. This is due to the growing size of the event and the added difficulty of organizing this for attendees.

Please email us at SilvertonSplitfest@gmail.com to let us know you would like to register. This will initially get you "on the list". We will provide the billing information via email to get registered. We will have two options, Paypal and Personal Check. Registration ends on 3/1/13 this year.

We will be capping the event at 75 attendees, so make sure to register to ensure a spot! Only after registration fees are paid is your spot guaranteed for the event. Emailing only does not guarentee a spot.

What does registering for Silverton Splitfest get you?

Food – 2 nights of catered food from Elevated Fine Dining, located in Silverton. After a big day on the mountain, good food is always nice to come back to, and Elevated does it right. Dinner will be provided on Friday and Saturday night between 6-7pm. There will be beer available as well from SKA Brewery.
Entertainment and Raffles – All attendees will be registered for the raffle, including a giveaway of a Venture splitboard! Each night, we will have entertainment at the Grand Imperial Hotel, which may include slideshows, avalanche training, and local guide knowledge of the area. More details to come on the full lineup as the event comes closer.
Free Demos – We will have free demos courtesy of Venture Snowboards, Chimera Snowboards, Voile, and OZ for attendees for the weekend. Also, there will be binding demos from Spark R&D, Voile, and Phantom Splitboard bindings (for the hardbooters). It is the best way to try out as many boards and bindings as you would like. To get a demo lined up, letting us know through email what size and model board you are interested in.
Venture Shop Tour – All entrants can participate in the Venture shop tour and get an inside look at the factory and how Venture makes such quality boards. Based right in the backyard of Silverton.

Where does the $ go to? We are not here to make profit from this event. It is an event to get people together and showcase the sport we all love in a great location. Any additional revenue that is gained will be donated to the Friends of CAIC, which handles the donations to help fund avalanche forecasting for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. Last year, we raised $1,365 to support CAIC.

*Lodging – There will be no lodging provided this year at Silverton Splitfest. This was based on the size of the event for organizers to handle individually. We will happily direct you to the best places in town to stay. If you would like to rent a house, Silverton Property Management has everything from 1-4 bedroom houses that can accommodate up to 12 people. Also, the Grand Imperial (event headquarters), the Triangle Motel, Teller House, and Canyon View Motel are better for attendees who do not need a full house. Book your lodging as soon as possible. Car camping can be done right outside of town as well, as long as you are respectful of the area.

**Note that this is not a guided event and attendees will be responsible for their own safety.

We didn't budget for shirts in the event cost, but I can certainly look into it. That's a good idea.

Quick season conditions update.

Our season started off pretty early this year, with turns happening for a lot of people in October
Image

November, we continue to recieve snow, and allowed us to do some fun lines
Image

The snow continued and we were able to pick off some bigger lines in December, that are normally lines in March / April
Image

We had a pretty long dry spell through January, but we were able to get out in the beginning of the year for some stable conditions.
Image

Snow returned around the beginning of February, and has sparked quite a bit of avalanche danger. But, this is the case for most of the united states and interior BC at this time. There is a deep persistant slab that is out there for us, and has created tricky conditions. But, its still fun if you choose the right terrain.
Image

Right now, we are about average snowpack for the year. April is normally a good month of the year. Stability improves and allows us to get into larger terrain normally. So although avalanche conditions are bad now, we have high hopes it will turn around by the festival.
