    Announcing the first Mt Baker Splitboard Festival. March 27-28, 2010

    You can read all about the festival and pay your fees here: http://www.splitboardfestival.com

    I’m going to link the site to this thread so feel free to discuss anything related to the fest here. We are still looking for sponsors so if you are a potential sponsor, go to the website and e-mail me.

    Also, the shopping cart is still in “sandbox” mode waiting for some final pricing.

    This is going to be fun, hope you can all make it.

    The lodge can sleep and feed 65 people. So yeah, there is a limit but I’d be floored if we fill the place.

    Wow, nice site. Pretty good work for a splitter. 😉 Really puts the pressure on Wyosplitride and Scrubfest. And I love the poster. Just wish I could make it up to PNW.

    This looks legit. Way to motivate. Noticed a spelling error on the poster, figured you’d catch it before the final print though.

    Thanks for catching the typo. My proof reader is in bed so let me know what it is and I’ll make the correction.

    That’s my birthday!

    I’m likely to be about 5000 miles away though. Good luck with it all, and have a beer for me on the 27th!

    Are you flying into SeaTac or Bellingham? There’s no shuttle service to Baker from either since there’s no accommodations at the Mountain. Baker does have a van that runs up to the mountain in the morning but I don’t think they go all the way to Bellingham. The Snowrider Project has an old bus, If there’s enough people that might be an option (if the bus is legal), there’s also another small van/bus that heads up there from Glacier every morning, maybe he could be convinced to make a trip. If all else fails I have a van

    Great work Terry, I’m sure I’ll be there but most likely sleeping in the van.

    Yeah, if you can get to Bham, we’ll get you to the lodge and back. I plan on going up Friday morning and ride the clownwire to get my ya-yas out so I can dedicate myself to the festival. So I could pick you up on the way.

    Had an idea last night; after the raffle we should do an acoustic jam session. So all you musicians out there, bring your acoustic instruments. (I’m emphasizing acoustic because the power up there is rather limited and I’d rather keep this simple)

    I won’t be able to commit for a while, but I’m leaning towards attending, and would prefer to drive and split gas (or diesel and vegi oil). I’m not a skater, but I would like to hit some other spots on the way and get in several days on the splitty, and perhaps a day at Mt. Baker ski area if the pow is good to go. Keep me in mind as we get closer.

    Looks great SketchyT-killer website!

    #620502

    This looks real good. I’m definetly in. Are there any ideas for route objectives and group leaders yet?

    I can offer rides from the Abbotsford Airport in British Columbia, it’s about a 50 minute drive to the lodge.
