baldylox The binding plates aren't actually mounted yet, though 15 / 30 is my usual stance so that is what I'll prob go with.

oneplankawanka Looks good cifex. I am surprised you mounted the bindind plates so forward, but I remember you said you change your binding angles from time to time. You are ready to earn your pow turns. Noble indeed. FYI make sure you counter sink those well so the wax you apply does not have a propensity to get torn out when sliding. ( like mine)

Did you buy the tractor skin too?

baldylox We'll see what happens. I should have it ready. I'd def be in for some Tuckermans days in the spring.

Mysticfalcon Looks pretty slick. Are you gonna bring it to Jay? Ive got a nice little BC trip that a friend showed me that can be done prettty easy. We could put in an afternoon and still get in 3 or 4 laps of the hill after riding the resort for the AM. Thats what they tell me anyway. I should be trying it out on Saturday afternoon.

baldylox I got the kid this week and did a little more work last night. Counter sinking the holes for the pivot hooks is a bit of a pain in the ass at first. Works best when you take it slow and let the ring build up and then just cut it away with an X-acto knife.

baldylox 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.

Mysticfalcon 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.
