How deep is it?
Splitboards really come into play when the powder is deep. If it's a 3" day than snowshows are fine. If it's an 8" day than skinny tele board still suck and your phat splitboard rules the world! It all depends on the day. As far as real deal comps... Voile, and Venture rule. Venture costs more because they cost more to make, and Burton still sucks. They make it becuase they can, but they still don't get it. Venture is local and cool. Voile is one state over and Matty rules! He's a cool guy and they have been doing it since day one. If you can get a deal on it do it. Eveyone selling one got a deal (or they would be keeping it). FACT!!!! The skins are the expensive part. They are fat and they cost more. If you want to snowboard down the hill, forget the snowshoes and get a splitboard. FACT!!!
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.
