i feel bad for the mtn approach guys, corey smith the inventor has been helping stoke snowboarders for a long time. Every time they post something up on the net a bunch of split boarders jump down there throat. their is not enough backcountry snowboarders for us to start hating on each other..
might have something to do with the fact that their online presence (at splitboard.com) has been borderline hostile and absolutely unreasonably dismissive of splitboarding as a whole.
Don't remember his name, it was on momorial day weekend last spring at bridger (3ft of new snow in late may). Skinny OG guy with a shaved/bald head. He was hauling ass on the approach and caught up to me at the top of the pk chair. We did a couple finger laps together and he had me and the dog photo slut for him. His skis were custom made.
The anti split stuff was a bit off putting, they even had a video titled "keep it together". They should have approched the marketing as an addition to the quiver not a split replacememt. Most splitters I know are gear hoars, a lot of cheap dirtbags too.
