I think the splitboarders might be the ones getting trolled here...

Any idiot can make a FB page and get a few friends to circlejerk. Now he's got two forums up in arms giving him attention and other skiers feeding his ego.

There is no reason to argue with people like that.

He deleted all negative comments. Big touchy ego. Made me think about the speed problem. I haven't done BC yet, but what about carrying snowshoes for safety? How long does it really takes to switch ? Would it be faster strap snow shoes on?

What they are leaving out in all this is the knowledge not to get caught in an avalanche to begin with, such as the SKIERS
caught in the one at Stevens Pass (I think) last year. That seems to be the real key to surviving one, essentially not getting caught in one, doesn't matter if it's a boarder or skier, i.e. judgement beforehand. Whether a boarder or skier can start digging you out faster is a moot point, because if you are buried deep enough to suffocate, that 30 secs or so won't make much of a difference. Just seems logical, though I ride the East and there are few places to get caught in one, I am tiring of this boarder hate resurgence the more I run into skiers on the hill when I board alone.

Was checking into it more and it seems that the survival rates drop dramatically after 15 min, so that makes the time difference that a boarder vs. skier getting to a person very negligible at best.

I agree with you, that not being there is the best option, but say you find yourself at the base of a slide and want to hike 100 feet up, would it be faster to strap snow shoes or split the board and put skins? I'll be starting BC soon, just curious about extra safety.

Thinking on it, the odds that you are at the base of the slide without actually being caught in the slide yourself are probably low, most rescues I have seen on video seem to be from the uphill. Others here that do BC would know more I am sure, just trying to think about it from a logical perspective. Curious myself though, would like to get into more BC in the Adirondack slides and other regions around here where there is that danger.

splitboards kill people.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to post on that guys page for about a week now. Seems he didn't like the accusation that he started the page due to trying to touch a splitboarders penis while in the toilets, but he got denied. Now his shame fuels his hate hahahahhaha.

Seriously though, I am hesitant to get into split boarding as there is not a quick eject in the event of an avalanche. It would be hard to do even with skis, but at least you would improve your changes of not getting dragged under.
Do we think the technology will allow for this in the future?
At this stage I would take snowshoes or just ski.
