First you need something like this Division 23 Snowboard to try it out on & work out all the unforeseen kinks.

Yeah bro for sure. We have a used sports place up here with like 200 really old piece of shit boards. I will do a test run on one for sure. After seeing all the early snow up here this year I am really kicking myself for not having a split.

If the new tail doesn't make it perfect, the next thing I'm gonna do is add some rocker to the nose.

I'd much rather smash this old dinosaur into the rocks than the Slackcountry.


There is probably a fairly good chance you could get it.
Personally, I hope not, I want it to be the best one so far.
But as you're probably aware, I go though boards @ a fair rate.

I could probably find you something good to split though?

@Timmy, I only asked if you still had it because I want it! lol I think the Slack will make a great split. Maybe by the end of the season you will consider parting with it for a fellow Canuck!

DrnknZag Nick at Sick Splits did my Slackcountry last year. He does good work. He used to work out of the Snocon shop, but he got his own shop this year.

$150 for a professional job isn't a bad deal, especially considering if you screw it up you're out a board. Cutting on the waterjet is preferred since you get a more precise cut and less material loss than with a saw.

Honestly I am looking forward to making out material due to my smaller feet. I make even make two passes with the saw just b/c of this.

Also, speaking of split boards.... Timmy you still have that Slackcountry lying around?
Ya, still sittin' there, but that sounded like I wanted to get rid of it?

I haven't even tried it yet!! But I went yesterday on the 56 banana & it was tits deep

So, I think 2morra I'm takin' her on her maiden voyage? Maybe?
The past few days the freeing level has been right around base level, so the bottom really hasn't gotten shit, rocks everywhere

But 2000 feet above that it has been snowing nonstop for the past 5 or 6 days.
They've only had Skychair open 2wice, yesterday & the day before because of winds.

3 days ago I went up there & did 1 run & was soaked to the bone, basically getting Slurpee poured on you. Each drop was the size of a small Slurpee.

Yesterday I went up there, I missed the opening of Skychair the day before, god damn it. Didn't really matter though, both days were whiteout blizzard.
Wow, that's what I have to say about that.

Despite it being white on white in white, it was the shite! I went a bit too far out of bounds & had to hike close to an hour back in.
It was so foggy & blizzardy, that I actually hiked right across the run I was looking for, into a another out of bounds area.

That fucked me up a bit, I go out there all the time & last year went really far & had a 6 hour hike out.
I wasn't into doing that this early in the year so I purposely shut er down, but because of that crossing of the run, it was very confusing.
I didn't know I crossed the run until I got out & realized where I was.
Should really only have been a ten min hike, turned out to be an hour.

Hiking up 60+ degree slopes, in tits deep, sucks.


The next clear day is going to be EPIC, I'll bring my cam but it's hard to pull it out when it's that good.
