Selected SPLITBOARD JOURNAL articles
The Aiguille du Fruit is one of the most impressive mountains in Courchevel. You can see it from all over the ski-resort and here you can watch a video how it is summited at perfect conditions with a splitboard.
Have you ever dreamt about riding in terrain, where you leave civilization completely behind you? Waking up every morning in a warm cabin with nothing but snow covered mountains around? Being surrounded by surreal glacial views? That is exactly what you find at the Highlands of Iceland.
In the past season we have tested again lots of new splitboards for you. Now we are happy to announce the winners of the independent "Splitboarding Editors Selection 2016-17".

From 16th until 18th of December everything is about Splitboarding at the LIVINGROOM HOCHKÖNIG. Shortly before christmas the new splitboard equipment is ready for you. This time with a multimedia presentation "Splitboard-Freeriding from Kyrgyztan to Tadzhikistan".

In March 2016 Davide Capozzi did some impressive Snowboard first descents in the Mont Blanc massif. Only days after the descent of Grande Rocheuse, he was out on Aiguille Verte with Julien and Lambert.

SPLITBOARD BOOTS and BINDINGS
CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES TESTED
The Vaude Boe Bib Pants are freeride oriented mountaineering pants instead of pure touring pants. Nevertheless I had the chance to test it a complete hard season while touring and I want to inform you about my experience with those pants.
Regarding the snow conditions of this season our mountaineering skills got leveled up, so I havn`t been out with my beloved Vaude ABS backpack but with the Vaude Simony 40+8.
We have tested the new Penguin Pinneco Insulation Jacket. The material 100% recyled Polyester, is super soft and really smooth tp wear. The aguility and flexibility required in mountainsports is absolutely given and the shape is cool.
The Vaude Tacul Jacket is perfect for ambitioned Mountaineers who like to wear, sensfull and simple designed Equipment. The matter of sustainability is important for Vaude what I like a lot. We enjoy nature and so we should also protect it as far as we can.
The Vaude ABScond 36+4 L is an excellent toploader, with enough space for touring equipment and dslr camera. It is perfectly suitable for advanced touring with sleepingbag, more day touring or longer day tours.
The side entry makes it super easy to reach all your stuff quickly
