Merry Xmas Sarah the Making of a SplitBoard

My Lovely girlfriend has moved west and its time to get her into the backcountry, the only problem being, shes a snowboarder. Not wanting to spend $1k on a factory made splitboard, I bought a Volle Split Kit online and looked into making my own. I scoured craigslist for a used snowboard with a wood core that would be up for the test and found one made by Burton, I couldn't help you with the name of the model (let me know if you know).

Burton or Forum Snowboard from Craigslist (snowboards are all the same)

How to Impress Girls

I maintain that my mother (who was standing on the dock) pressured me into it.

Vargas Island

Going back a little bit here, a great weekend with friends on Vargas Island just outside of Tofino. Its a 15 minute boat ride and then an hour walk across an island to get to paradise. Somehow these guys always seem to luck out with weather! Complete with fresh sushi, angry wolves, skim boarding and meat on a stick.
After a short Hike across the island we arrive on an empty beach!

Mt Taylor with the Brock Dock Fellers

Our Biannual ski trip first time to the Duffy Lake road we skied Steep Creek the first day and Mt Taylor the second great conditions for both days. For Taylor we didn't make the summit as we were worried about travelling under some south facing slopes exposed to the sun.
