Bumping this for anyone who is interested in attending Silverton Splitfest. We are trying to close registration this week, so if you want to be a part of this, let us know!

We have a ton of gear to raffle off to all entrants, including a Venture Splitboard, BCA Stash pack, 2 pairs of G3 skins, and more to come.

We also have beer from Ska and Ourayle House! Should be a great event to come out and meet new splitters and check out new areas!

And we are going to have a ton of demos from Chimera, Winterstick, and Venture (including next years boards, and the Euphoria!)

More swag for the raffle! Big thanks to G3!

Newbie are welcome as we just got in contact with Southwest Adventure Guides. Andrew over there wrote the only guide book in the area.

Quick update on split demos from Pete at Winterstick:


Hi John –

We’ll do a split Swallowtail and Split Tom Burt Pro [for demo].

Cheers,
Pete


I guess Hikeforturns is going to be missing his left nut in the trade.

bummed this is closing weekend of Telluride, otherwise myself and many others on the other side of the valley would be in 100%. Any 1 day deals for it going? I can swing 1 day. Would love to meet some more SJ splitboarders but closing weekend is kind of a big deal, plus I'll be in Silverton for all of April unguided. Bummer as I was all for this from the beginning and all the preliminary dates were much later. Unfortunately this looks like it will be way way to early in the season for riding good terrain. I've never seen the mountains shed and slide on every aspect since Monday.

Let me know what other options exist....thank you for putting this together, it will be amazing

We have extended the registration to Feb 26th for those wanting lodging included. After that, people can still register up until March 11th. Hope this helps some of you who need more time to figure out work schedules. Look forward to a great event.

Hey Rider11,

It was tough getting the date nailed down. Lots of competing interests and we did our best. Maybe next year it will line up better for you and those riding Telluride. As you know, timing these things is always a gamble. To early, and stability is an issue, wait to long and potentially get the dust layer and not enough snow. Personally, I'd rather have good snow and dial it back than not enough. Since this is our first year, we are trying to keep it simple and do a really go job with what we have going on, so the only option is with or without lodging for the full three days.

-John

Hey Rio,

We are not going to tell you what to ride or where to go. If you would like to ride at Silverton Mountain Ski area, I'm not going to stop you. However, we have not coordinated with them at all and we don't have any deals with them. I've been there several times and the mountain is fun to ride. However, I've only been there for unguided and the event weekend is during guided season.

As for splitboarding terrain, we have Silverton Avalanche School who is going to give a slide show of the greater Silverton/ Red Mountain Pass area and offer suggestions of places to ride and place to keep out of. We want everyone to have a good time and be safe. We are also working with the author of the only guide book for the area and will have a few of his books on hand for people to look at.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

-John
