    I’m putting together an east coast splitboard web series with a few friends. The first episode went live today! It was filmed in VT in mid January. We should have several other episodes throughout the winter.

    Awesome! I’m coming back to VT in 2 weeks. I hope conditions are just as good. I recognized a few of the spots, but I’m trying to figure out where to go on this trip back.

    Tight work!!! East coast splittin sounds like a great time… never rode a split out there but the Mt Mansfield area is what sparked my interest in the backcountry to begin with.
    I can recall late night hikes to sketchy cabins so we could hike aka posthole for a few hrs to get to lines like hellbrook, overhang and buttcrack! If i only had any idea of how insane splittin was then.

    Can’t wait for the next installment. I want to see some footage of the WIZARD Nate Howells!

    Keep up the ice-coast splittin!!! :headbang:

    Nice stuff. Would have loved to see more action shots of the area. I’ve seen many familiar trees from the south in that video. Good stuff! Can’t wait to see more!

    good stuff. this winter has been pretty damn good so far, so i’ve been wondering where all of the vt stoke has been. then i realized that everyone was still out riding. figures that this warm-up comes the week after i get my split up and running.

    Sweet shots. I hope to get my hands on a Go Pro soon and get some more East Coast split footage on the site.

    On another note, I am feeling an East Coast Split fest next year….My vote is for the Daks, with Keene Valley as our homebase. A late February/early March date would likely ensure a solid base, with potential for good pow. Any thoughts?

    I’ll surely take part in it.

    Don’t have time to put it together… 🙁

    I’d certainly try to line up my calendar for it. I get back to VT 1x/year during the winter due to business trips to NY/Bos and try to get up to ride with my brother (lives in Jericho).
