OhDaddy. . . what a day! Stillwater Mountain Nordic Center was off the charts today!

What a bitchen place.

They allow you to take your doggies out on some of the trails and I got some SERIOUS DOG LOVE along the way.

Skied up to a killer little overlook where they have a darling park bench to hang out on. I kicked off the Fischers and sat there takin' in a kind of sweetness one only finds in the deep reaches of rural Montana.

It was sunny and snowing.

Silent.

My spirit was on wing as I glanced to the BigSky and watched a lone bald eagle riding the thermals.

Wow.

First, that board is bordering on being a collectors item. And it looks like it's in great shape! Think twice.....

Second, I can't tell from the photo (and can't recall my history that well), but if it has the 3-hole pattern, it'll be a pain in the ass to split. Does it have inserts along the center of the board (where you'd cut it)? If so, that will create problems. It's not impossible, just challenging.

Awesome score briham!

i made the mistake of splitting a Burton and the 3 hole pattern was definitly an inconvenience but it still does the trick and is on its 3rd season.

Good call BCD. To be honest I'm a complete noob when it comes to splitboarding. It does have a 3 hole setup and it also has extra metal in the nose and on the tail. Hey kid does the three hole setup just mean more drilling, or are the holes in the line of the cut?

Yea. The holes and in the line of cut, they spark line crazy, and make the finished project look like a hack job.

Damn.... maybe I should find another donor. I just watched a DIY make a splitboard video with the Voile kit and it seems pretty straight forward. I could see how those holes would make it a potential hack job though :( anybody want a classic snowboard for trade???? haha

edit: Yeah Mike that's kind of what I'm thinking now

Wow! Nice additions all!

Sick pics guys!

Nice deck Briham! I betcha that would make a heavy split! Would look cool tho. Your probably better off to find a four hole pattern deck though.! My buddy has an old "air" he still rocks once in awhile.

Suze, I want snow too! We need some pow!!

Briham, take your pick, although with the Malolo u would have the same hole pattern issue, the Paavo is well ridden but super solid, both 62's. Actually I have a 170 option free plus up in the storage hole too, maybe a few others but their probably trashed. The 170 would be a jib board for Big Mike but if your under 200 it would be a charging machine! I'll try & dig it up but it's pretty much mint & could be a good option to split. If u aren't too attached to that AIR I'd be stoked to work something out, always wanted that deck when I was about 10 or 11, real bad. Never got a chance to ride one. The other thing I could offer u would be (conditions permitting), the best lap you've ever done at a resort if u ever make it up here :-)

Just went out on my split for the first time yesterday, was real fun & I'm psyched for more.

We have a blue bird weekend right now and the ski areas are on "fire"


from Bridger Bowl's snow report:

52" storm total since Tuesday! Please carpool to the mountain this weekend as we are expecting a big crowd due to all the new snow this week.

I confess, I can probably schralp more GNAR than you can dream of.

That said (and I'm glad I got that out of the way), I'm headed to the mountain known as Okemo, the family mountain, tomorrow.

It's going to be off the charts epic. My roommate from Truckee and I are going to show La Montana Familia what's up!

Goofy 360's, awkward backflips, sick groomer turns, it's all going down! Don't f*#k with mid thirties weekend warriors, we will crush.

Oh, Lincoln Loops, you ask? Yeah, with a sweet grab.

Pictures will ensue, and make you wish you were as rad as me.

GUNS AND HOSES!

CRACKED ME UP!
