Use that cash for a sled and buy a cheap board off e-bay. Then lap yo friends all day long!
Yeah that'll be cheaper.

Voile Splitz are running $759 this year I believe. That is still about $500 cheaper than buying a decent AT setup and boots. Get a split you won't regret it.

Believe me, a sled is tempting. But I dont really have the means for one right now. As for SKi.....there will be none of that....unless its uphill.

This brings me to my next question, do you guys w/ splits still use the same boots or did you have to buy some just for the splitboard? Obviously, I'd like to use the boots I already have and I know some interface's allow you to use the boots you already got.

You use what ever boot binding interface you choose. I use straps and soft boots. Your bindings or mounting to plates that slide over pucks, which are set to your stance. So you can go hard boot, soft boot, straps, step ins, plates, whatever you like. The plates slide off the pucks and quickly move to tour mode. Then you just tour in your bindings. It's a pretty simple setup, but for some pics chick out Voile's site. I have toured several miles over three years on my original setup. After about 140 days I broke a tail clip. After 180 days I cracked my slider plates. None of these problems caused me to lose a day of riding. Very, very reliable.

Definitely get over to the Forums. The community there can really help you out with your questions. Many more experts on splitboards there than on this board. I have rode with a few of the guys from that site. All are very cool. Plus representitaves from Never Summer and Voile frequent that board. You can get info directly from them if need be.
