WADE is the man, what fantastic planning and great flow to the whole weekends festivities.

I gotta lay down one massive thanks to Emily and the gang at Prior. I got to roll down thick pow on Cheops Glades and the Hourglass on a brand new Fissile 172 demo with new Karakorams and new G3's..... WOW was is it ever bitchin, what a phenomenal set up. A part of me died at the end day when turning it back over. I wish I had the funds to real in both a prior bc for mountaineering and a fissile for pow slayin..... Since I aint got the funds just the bc is now on the radar.

Greg Hill and Kyle Miller, awesome presentations and great speaking with those gentlemen, inspirational is an understatement. Karkis and Strain great stuff.

Finished the weekend off at the NRC gully, 600m of face blastin chaos right back to the parking lot.

Everyone I rode with and hung out with, you are all absolute top shelf, till next year....
Slim/Marc

Big thanks to Wade and Prior for hosting the event, it was a memorable experience for all that attended. Also a big thanks to the sponsors for helping raise the funds for the CAF, anyone that donated to the raffle deserves a huge round of applause.

Thank you mother nature for the snowpack and all the people I toured with (Patrick, Greg, Rick, Marc, Jason).

Such an awesome weekend! Big thanks to wade for putting this on again and to everyone that came out to shred. So cool to see that many like-minded splitboarders in one place. Stuck to the below treeline for most of the trip but was rewarded with many many faceshots. Favorite spot of the weekend was off glacier crest to the best pillows I have ever ridden top to bottom. See you in the mtns!

Here is my video from the trip. It was taken on the first run and sums up perfectly how the trip went for me. I might throw up the much longer version later. Still gotta finish editing. Wade thanks for putting on such a kick ass event :clap:

Sorry for the country accent I am originally from the south HA!

Big props to Wade for putting together another killer event! And props to all the splitters from far & away who showed up, played safe and got their shred on. Had a kickass time riding with old friends (numbernine, vapor) & new friends (uriedog, libtechsplit, jason). Sorry to those who I didn't get an opportunity to ride with, or just geek out afterwords over beers & splitboards, a weekend just isn't enough time!

Yes, what a great weekend. Thanks to Wade and all the folks who made it possible. Was tough getting in the car this AM and driving 8 hours home when there was 6" of fresh at the hotel. Will post some pics once I go through them.

Had a great time as well. Was fantastic to meet up with folks from around the continent.
Once again Wade did a great job organising the whole thing.

I too rode the Fissile...nice board, makin' me rethink my budget for the year.

Met too many folks from the forum to call 'em all out...but I did want to say "Happy Birthday Tex"!
Hope the Asulkan was good for ya.

aloha,
gary
