After a few weeks of being overly-excited about snow and forgetting our responsibilities, we finally set out on Sunday with the specific purpose of testing out the PoleClinometer and comparing it to some of the more popular inclinometers on the market. That's not to say we didn't get in some epic turns as well, but we'll get to those in another post. First, the inclinometers!
What is split boarding? How do you do it? Splitboarding is a great way to take snowboarding into the backcountry. You used to have to snowshoe in with your snowboard on your back and then transition over at the top of your run. Now, we can use a splitboard to approach the mountain just like an Alpine Touring ski set up and then attach the two “skis” together to make a snowboard.
