Oh Man, After reading this thread, I think I'm going to pull the trigger soon.(the saw trigger)
I don't really want to use my old Burton Frontier 162 as a rock board because it's been such a great board to me.
I just need to find some friends with touring skis or split boards.

How to the boards ride after being split in comparison to before being hacked apart?

haha, same here.

I ain't hiking SHIET this year... esp. if Big Jay is accessible by tram... If I lived close to a big mountain, or somewhere where back country was accessible like BC or the Rockies, I'd buy a wicked split board, but living on the ice coast, no way. Back country riding is more about safety and learning where/when to ride, as much as it is about the safety gear.

I'd never go out that way w/o a proper guide or a local, so as not to end up in the same position we did last year

I want the splitboard to make that hike back from the golf course better That and to get across the saddle trail over to the top of big Jay from the top of Jay without trudging in the snow.

You do still have to hike to Big Jay from the tram. I am definitely doing at least out of bounds timbuktu to the road. Doubt I'll be using the split this trip. What I really want it for is so I can do a couple trips to Tuckermann's Ravine this spring.
