Just wanted to provide some follow up to the Donner Split Party presented by splitboard.com, give a big shout-out to all the attendees/sponsors, and share some pics from the event.
First off, thanks to everyone that came out to support this event! We had about 30 people stay at the lodge and 50 show up for the raffle. We raised $1,402 for our local Avy Center (SAC)!!! They are stoked/grateful and these donations help ensure their valuable services to the bc community continue. For my friends that couldn't make it (not mentioning any names!), hopefully we will see you next year!
Second, thanks to the Clair Tappaan Lodge for having us and to the following sponsors for their support!
Voile Venture Spark Jones Snowboards Arbor Never Summer G3 K2 Osprey Down The Middle splitboards Local Knits Stance Socks Best Buy
Also wanted to thank Andy from Sierra Avalanche Center for the Friday night discussion, Jeremy Jones and the Zellers for letting folks tag along on a group tour, as well as the the Jones and K2 reps that came out.
One of the things I look to improve next year is to have a better demo area. This year is was a little difficult to let folks demo boards due to limited space.
Here's some pics:
