What's up everybody? I just bought my first splitboard last night. It's a Voile 173and a few years old (was used as a shop demo) but got a bro deal on it so figured it was worth it.

Anyways stoked to try it out, my buddy has the same setup and has been doing it for a few years. We normally access the backcountry on our sleds and I am hoping this will allow us to get out to some of the peaks that are harder to access. Anybody else out there in the cascades (or elsewhere) using the snowmobile/splitboard combo to access the goods?

At times, I use the snowmobile/splitboard combo to get to the hard stuff with long approaches when time is of the essence. Love em both for that reason. My dad always says, "there is a time and place for everything."

Around these parts, a snowmobile ride to the goods means 50 miles at times.

Welcome to the game. It only gets more addictive. 8)

Yes... but why on earth would we want to do that? I can think of numerous reasons why we wouldn't want to:

-conditions suck (like now)
-doubling for 10-20 miles blows or often times impossible
-revealing our hard earned "secret" spots
-have no clue of your proficiency
-I am anti-social

*Of course, if your supply'n the beverages and party favors... many of my above points could easily be overlooked...

I do agree though, we need more snow before it is worth while. We have high freezing levels forecasted through next week.
