Very true statement here. If you have good snowshoes with risers they are fine and i never had a problem keeping up. I picked up an Icelantic split last year and I think splitboarding is the way to go up here. there are still some days that ill take snow kicks out depending on conditions and the terrain im going into. If im going to have to boot pack or do 50 kick turns to make it up a slope id take snow kicks any day.
