THE WASATCH MOUNTAIN CLUB IS BACK ON!!!

They've repaired the plumbing, so we now have running water, and showers.

There is still space available at the lodge, so email me or phone Voile (801) 973-8622 to make your reservation, we have about 10 spots left. Cost is $50.00 total for the 2 nights together.

Greetings like-minded split fanatics! Yes we're having the Splitboard Festival again, and we're excited about bringing it back to the Wasatch this year. We will have numerous sponsors this year, with Splitboard.com and Voile already in on it. Watch for new details and new sponsors being updated here.

The dates are March 17-19, and we will be having a program both Friday and Saturday evenings, beginning at 7PM bith nights. SLC is located within a 20-30 minute drive from SLC, so there are an infinite number of motels to select from for lodging. Winter camping is also available in BCC at the Spruces Campground, but reservations must be made in advance.

There will be a program for Friday and Saturday evening including avy info, home brew films, the history and future of splitboarding, food, drink, and a generous gear raffle. There will be industry folks there to chat with and of course there will be SPLITBOARDING!

There is no fee for the event, as this is all about the riding!

Been waiting for the announcement. I'm just glad it's not in February, so maybe I can make it out there for the festivities.

Sweeet!! I needed an excuse to make it down to your neck of the woods. Reservations for camping? Is there a fee for camping there? Now let's see some wasatch stoke from you Utah boys.

Thanks for the info, count me in for a tour at least one of the days (may have to work on Saturday).

The Powderkeg is that same weekend, probably a good idea to line up some of the faster splitters to compete. I heard a splitter placed in the top 10 of the race division at whistler (9th) + you get to ride Alta inbounds during the season! Not to mention making a statement about snowboarding at alta. I'd personally like to see the Albion basin side opened to boarding, makes sense given the terrain.

Thanks to DJBarney and the Voile crew for getting this together!

Not to be disrespectful, but on the subject of riding Alta, I say GO TO HELL ALTA AND TAOS. Why is alta considering letting snowboarders in? Simple economics. Skiing populations are getting smaller while snowboard useage is on the increase. These two resorts have made it a point to keep up out, now they want our money. Bullshit. Why so hostile ? Easy Alta and Taos dont own the land their lifts sit on . WE Do .Its national forest property and I dont understand how the goverment can restrict snowboarders from a resort operating under a permit from the forest service. I have spoken to the director of the national forest that Taos about restricting people from public land and he said that the forest service in that area had determined that skiers and snowboarders were incompatable???? Guess they have never been to anglefire right down the road. So what Im saying is boycott anything to do with alta or taos ...forever.

Can someone copy this to the events forum and/or make it sticky? It would make it easier to find.

My Girlfirends father (a doctor) is taking her and i out March 15-19. We are staying at the Canyons, but ill have a car!!! Ive been told that if have no obligation to stick to with them at the resorts, but thought that was my only option..... :twisted:

OK. Now i need to get in better shape! Guess i should start paying attention now too....

Sorry i sound like a little girl about to go see New Kids on the Block. :roll:
