Anybody got any more info than “looks”? I just heard it will be out in Sept. Are they simply spliting one of their solid boards? If so, does anybody know which model? May 5, 2005 at 4:41 pm #582001 powderjunkie 1669 Posts I believe their split is basically the severe terrain board. It has taper, bigger radius, less camber?, fairly stiff and solid construction (ie. not the lightest board). I rode it and liked it. They better have iit out before next season.

Nice taper, well constructed, but HEAVY! He said it was a Severe terrain w/ a little more taper i think. Sweet.

January 12, 2006 at 6:49 pm #582007 NoKnees 336 Posts I’ll be down in South Lake area this weekend, no chance to get around to Sugar Bowl for a demo… Bummer! Anyway, the thing that catches my eye with the board is the wide waist… Doesn’t lend itself well to agressive riding angles… Sure, it’s not as bad as it seems when paired with the 10.x meter sidecut, but still.. I guess you’ll get more float out of the short length, but still… 25.8cm… Dunno… Need someone to demo it for me.. 🙂 Anyone? Anyone? Greg - NoKnees April 22, 2006 at 6:25 pm #582008 BGnight 1382 Posts I broke down and bought a split ’62 even though it’s a little short for my liking. I figured the extra effective edge would make up for it. Well, I am stoked! The only other board I can compare to is the Voile ’66 and I have to say this thing is sooooooooo much more solid on marginal snow. It doesn’t feel like I’m on a ’62 cuz of the huge amount of effec. edge and lack of sidecut. On superdeep days I do leave this at home and take out my ’66, but even on “normal”, deep days this thing rocks. It has a very hard, fast base which looks like could take a couple of shots from rocks. I gently rode over a sharktooth w/ my Voile and the base peeled to the core like a overripe banana. The only beef I have w/ the design is the lack of nose. I wish they could have added a cm. or two just to the nose itself for pow, but thats just cuz I prefer ’64 -’66’s. When on windboard, corn, or any other Sierra funk this thing feels like a brick shithouse and oh, yeah…..it likes to haul ass!!! I’ve noticed more stablity while skinning too. I’m much more confident traversing firm snow than my ’66 voile. I’m down in bishop right now and am planning on putting this thing to the test on some steeps. I’m sure I won’t be dissapointed.

Yes the Sierra season has been in swing over the last week. Fun to be out in the mountains. Yes, the Wintersticks are now on the split market. Finally, it has been killing me to get them out there but it is now done. As far as putting pins in from the outside. To much junk between the feet on the split for them to be on the inside.
