I am absolutely blown away by your report! I am currently in the process of planning a to Iceland to hike Hvannadalshnukur and do some other touring. I had not given any thought at all to bringing the splitboards. Now I have to re-think EVERYTHING! I am going to re-read your report about a thousand times, share it with my travel partners, and start all over with the planning. Thank you for this.
Cool. Thanx to all again for viewing this and thanx most of all to MagnusIceland for being the true Icelandic Splitboard Legend. I hope I helped some people have a a good upcoming trip. Everywhere I have been snowboarding good local people have made it happen for me. We should never take those folks for granted and always return the favors by helping others. Thats one main reason I post TRs.
SurfaceHore - WTF? Where u at? Wait till u see my next TR and then it will definitely be apparent how old I really am. Top secret shit in the making....
nedrapier - thanks much for taking the time to view these photos with intention. Spring skiing in general has always been a favorite activity of mine - particularly because of the easy dry-ground camping, the stable snow, the good weather, the rushing waters, and the new greenery coming to life. Doing it from the seashore is beyond a special treat and as far as I know this can only be done in the far north (or the far south, but I am not sure one can sleep on grass in Antarctica). I hope you make it north for a few turns someday.
