    Hi Splitters,

    Just wanted to provide a little insight on the site status and some issues I’m facing.

    As much as I try to keep my personal life private I feel like you need to know that I’m in a really bad place in my life right now. I’m currently going through a separation and divorce from the mother of my children and wife of 19 years.

    It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through and it’s going to take time for me to heal. I know there’s a lot of things that need to be done with the site but I just can’t get to them right now. The site isn’t the reason for our martial issues but in hindsight the amount of time I’ve spent on it over the years could have been better severed on our relationship and it’s definitely taken a toll.

    I need to focus on what’s most important in my life, my family and my own health.

    So with that, please continue to make the most of this awesome place we’ve created and I hope to see you all on the other side soon.

    Very, very sorry to hear that Chris! All the best to you and hang in there man!

    Thank you for all you’ve put into this place. We all appreciate it!

    After much research, experimentation and consideration, I have decided adulthood is not for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Sorry to hear of your situation Chris, I wish you all the best and positive vibes to all involved.

    Thank you for contributing to the enrichment my existence through the creation of this community. That may sound a bit dramatic, but beyond just riding; splitboarding has provided me an avenue to more profound personal aims and progression of self. So for me the resource has helped in ways that extend beyond just riding a snowboard out of bounds.

    I’ve been MIA. Sorry to hear this. I know you have worked hard to make it work.

    If you decide to come out for SIA this year, you still have a place to stay.

    Perhaps it would be better to make it more about splitting and afternoon visits to the show. Hint, hint…

    Damn, dude. I’m sure it will work out for all involved, in due time. If it ever snows in Tahoe again, hit me up and let’s do some shreddin’. You know, to keep your head on straight.

    Hey man,

    Just wanted to say that an introduction to splitboarding and this site (really) helped me through an extremely difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol. It was in the mountains and talking about the mountains here that helped me find some solace. The mountains can heal, I know. Your dedication to this site and this sport is bigger than you know. Let it return the favor!
