It's Albuquerque, about 4 and a half hours. It's not really a large, more a midsize airport.

Tex, if you can fly into Grand Junction, i could possibly pick you up? It is on my way anyways and probably about 2 hours from Silverton. PM me if interested.

Anyone truck camping? I imagine i will find somewhere to crash or park my truck and camp

I'm truck camping again this year and I'll be driving from Denver for anyone flying in needing a ride. It's a 7 to 8+ hr. ride depending on the weather, but I also drive slow and stop at gas stations for fuel and smoke-breaks in the TC every 120 miles. No plans on when I'm going or coming back yet, I'm flexible.

I don't know where I'm going to park yet either, but there wasn't many cars and people on the main street of the town last year, it felt like I could park anywhere. A fun option is to find a house that a group has rented out hang out there and park nearby. I'm going to try the Silverton Mt. parking lot also.

Hey all, I've been out of the country (BC) the past 10 days, sorry for the late replies. To be honest, not sure what the snow is doing first hand in the past couple weeks. Looking at snotel and CAIC, seems like we have had a few little spits of snow the past few weeks, but overall a little dry spell. The snow is holding on around 72 inch depth as of last night. To give perspective, last year it was 56" at the same time, so its in good shape. Stability seems good at Moderate, and Low below treeline. The forecast looks warm and sunny with a little precip. Cold nights (lows under 20, highs over 40) in the future too. So I assume its turning into a more springlike snowpack and will continue too stabilize the snow. Remember last year we had a huge stabilization period then 2 feet of pow prior, lets all pray for that again!

I'll get out this weekend and give a better first hand report.

And to answer questions on airports, Montrose and Durango are the closest airports, but relatively small. Durango has direct from Denver and Phoenix flights. Not sure the other larger airports.

We have 45 spots currently occupied, and registration is closing in 2 weeks, so make sure to pay your $60 dues prior to this! This allows us to know how much food to order (and its super good food).

Getting excited and hope to see you all in a month!

TEX just booked ! Flying into Durango and staying at the Canyon View Motel
Swanny will be driving in so He will be picking me up. I hope the snow is better that Here or Shames where I just came from.
Without snow TEX hasn't done much at elevation. This should be brutal

Yipeeeee

I'm super stoked this year on the amount of demo boards we have available. I think this is the coolest thing about splitfests, demo'ing splitboards. This year, we added 2 new board demo companies. So right now, we have demos from Venture, Chimera, Voile, Furberg, and Prior. We also have binding demos from Spark, Voile, and Phantom (for the hardbooters out there).

That's a lot of options! I'm still trying to piece together what I want to ride that weekend, but I'm stoked! :headbang:

I also can't wait to give away the splitboards this year. That's so much fun, if only I could win :)

I will be bringing a 148 spliff set up for sparks. I'm hoping to get Barrows on it for at least a day. Anybody else is welcome to test drive. And yes you can chNge the stance or set it up for hard boots.

I probably aught to see what all this hullabaloo over Furbergs is about.

Love the demo options at the Splitfest. Last year I never used my own gear!
