Dirt cheap at only $189, part snowshoe part ski, this is exactly what I would want for Michigan backcountry stuff.

Wow, thanks for the link. Very cool and I've never heard of those before... My family has a cabin at the top of the Upper Peninsula and we pass Marquette on the way up.

These guys need to build a new mold for a snowboard shape that can lock together like a split board does. Might not be the best based on their videos, as they seem to climb a little, then ski a little, then climb a little, and then ski a little, etc., but for people who have access to longer runs, they could climb to the top, clip the 2 "skis" together and then snowboard down.
