    Hey Everyone,

    This year is going to be our fourth annual Silverton Splitfest. Nestled in the southwest corner of Colorado, Silverton is an old mining town with minimal inhabitants and big mountains, making it an ideal destination for a splitboard festival.

    The event will be Thursday April 9th through Sunday April 12th, and will be a similar format to previous years. Registration will be $70 this year, payable through check or paypal, and covers all listed below, as well as 1 raffle ticket.

    As always, we will have free demos for Friday – Sunday from Venture, Voile, Prior, Furberg, and others!

    Prizes will be from Venture, Neversummer, Spark R&D, G3, and many others!

    The preliminary schedule is as follows:
    Thursday 9th
    Companion Rescue Class with Silverton Avalanche School – Brush up on your rescue and beacon skills
    Venture Shop Tour – See how boards are made, and whats cooking in the shape shack!

    Friday 10th
    Tour all day!
    Dinner catered by Elevated Fine Dining, always good after a long day on the hill
    Learning classes, focused on avalanche education

    Saturday 11th
    Tour all day!
    Dinner again from Elevated Fine Dining
    Raffle and good times to be had!

    Hope to see you all there! Email to get registered!

    Sooooo bummed that I can’t make it this year, just too many other trips and not enough money and time. But next year, for sure! Highly recommend the house rental (I think it’s called the Bottling Company?) in the middle of town with the hot tub. You can squeeze like 10 dudes in there and it’s pretty cheap.

    Heya….I cancelled my “The Historic Bottle Factory” reservation for splitfest…It’s 500 a week…Easily can sleep 3-4 stanky fookin vatoz! It’s got a great view too. Just hit up Silverton Property Management for details.

    Hey all,

    If you haven’t kept up on it, we have been getting PUMMELED WITH SNOW! In the past 2 weeks, we have gotten at least 4 feet of new snow. Our snowpack has almost doubled in that time period, and we are now at 100% of average. Its been good. Now is time to sign up for Silverton Splitfest. Email us at to get registered.

    How Mant people you got coming so far?

    Also- I may be rolling in solo. Will be looking for a group to tour with.

    Around 30 people with interest, and 20 people officially signed up. Add in an additional 10-15 people for sponsors as well. Usually we get a good influx of registration the last few weeks of March. So keep spreading the word everyone!

    Finding a touring group shouldn’t be difficult. I can help out too. I’ll also send a big email, and that will help out if anyone wants to group up prior.
