    Vehicles 25 years of age or older may be imported into the USA, so this ’89 Delica should be eligible:

    Reflectix is a great suggestion as are many listed above. Baby wipes are great in a pinch for hygiene when you can’t pull the whore’s bath. A space blanket atop the mattress pad will also keep you warmer in a car. I’ve been using this 21′ Class B+ for overnights and long trip; currently in it FT.

    Mid-season bump, price drop

    FS: 2012 Ortovox S1 Avalanche Transceiver – $250

    I bought this in November 2011 and used it winter 2012. Includes original packaging, all instructions, and three-point harness. Here is a review and a stock photo of the beacon:

    Sochi is 3000km away and there even wasn’t a resort there couple of years ago, so I don’t see how it can have any effect on Gulmarg…

    It’s called displacement. The costs of staying at Sochi, and the friction between Russians -vs- well, all of the Caucasus states, is causing more Russians to go overseas this winter than is usual. The largest demographic at Gulmarg are the Russians, and there will be a bump this year.

    Did you make it up there on Tuesday? Pretty sweet conditions.

    Equipped with B/S/P. I’m guessing the ridge terrain is kinda thin as yet and a few days inbounds won’t hurt to get my legs under me.

    Pretty sure I will be at Bridger on Monday. I’m new to BB so I’d like to meet people and learn the hill.

    Just go and forget about raising a partner as you will meet people on the ground. Your timing coincides with peak season AND the Winter Games at Sochi. Gulmarg will be awash with Russians and you’ll be lucky to find a bed. In ’12 everything was sold out in February and visitors had to stay in Tangmarg and Srinagar. Never seen that before.

    In addition to the crush of tourists there is a political battle going on right now that could greatly impact your visit. No, not Pakistan, but the Pollution Control Board. They are shutting down hotels for violations that have been ongoing but are now an “issue”. As there are millions to be made in summer and much less in winter some of the hotels are electing to renovate in winter, aka, rooms closed down. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2013/12/hotel-closures-hit-kashmir-tourism-2013124543668450.html

    You’d be better off starting your trip the last week of February, or the first week of March. There is a huge base, 2 or 3 storms in March, and all the crowds are gone.

    Hi Bozeman people.
    I’ve got the winter off and a pass at the Bowl. First winter in Montana. Planning to ride every day that I can and am looking to meet riding partners for both inbound laps and splitboard missions. Tend to ride inbounds M-F and would like to get to know BB really well this season. If I can join you or share rides please hit me up, thanks. Stoked on this new snow!

    Yup, that’s still an issue.

    It’s the only complaint I have with the Spliff so far, and was solved by drilling through the plastic clip and tying off a leash attaching to the spare post (a trick posted here by someone wiser, thanks).

    Your welcome 😉 :thumpsup:

    Yeah that’s the ticket schwalbster, kudos

    Great riding at JH, but Jackson is unfriendly, has a weird vibe, and is remote. Vacation ok, but life? Forget it.

    So far have only ridden the Spliff inbounds from the lifts (downhill mode) so can comment on that alone but it has been 100% fun and a great improvement overall from the 168 it replaces. I had ridden a Nug here and there over the last two seasons so the “Raduction” was not a surprise to me. I’ve been riding this on everything including wall rides, slider boxes, icy groomers and fresh woods and it performs well everywhere.

    168 cms were appropriate in India where it was always above treeline in big terrain, but in Vermont the trees are two feet apart, maybe. Except for the biggest days the Spliff will do the trick and be so much lighter underfoot or on the back.

    The big surprise for me is the Spark Burner bindings I have mounted on the Spliff. The fit, comfort, and durability exceed my expectations and the functionality is top notch. The response between board & binding reminds me off the Bomber bindings I used when I raced GS & SL, absolutely rock solid.

    Except for a brief unhappy stint with the Light Rail bindings I have been using Slider Tracks and traditional bindings, so the weight difference, combined with the 20cm drop in length makes for an astonishingly light and playful splitboard setup. The ratchets and ladders on the Light Rail bindings I used before skipped within hours first time out, so I was nervous about buying into Spark bindings, but again I mention their durability has been outstanding.

    I’ll start skinning this week, so I’ll get a grip on the uphill function of the Spliff. Of greater concern are the skins I trimmed down from the 168. The shape of the nose alters the way the skin clip lies on the nose, so the skin doesn’t run parallel to the inside edge. It may want to wander off outboard as it goes toward tail. Anyone else see this happening? Also, the tail kick makes me think the skins may need tail clips ASAP. (BTW, these are Voile Tractor Skins).

    Thanks that’s exactly the kind of feedback I was looking for. The airbag gets all the scrutiny but the pack often does not. I almost bought a BCA because the price was great but I held off, glad I did.
