Split Board aka Split Snowboard
If you’re an avid snowboarder but you’ve never tried splitboarding, then you don’t know what you’re missing. Since the mid-1990s, splitboarders have been tearing up the slopes, and today’s splitboards make riding more exciting than ever.
Our article answers the question what is a splitboard
but bimply put, a "splitboard" is a snowboard that you can take apart and use as skis. This allows you to climb without the need to carry your board. Simply attach the climbing skins to your splitboard, and glide along the surface of the snow. If you’ve ever tried to climb in boots or snowshoes, then you’ll appreciate the extra speed that climbing skins provide.
When riding your splitboard, observe the same safety rules that you would when snowboarding. Stick to areas that you know well. Check the weather forecast before you leave your house, and bring a partner whenever possible. Taking a course on backcountry safety and avalanche awareness is also a good idea.
